Ubisoft Recruiting for Triple-A Wii U Online Game

Posted by James Newton

What could it be?

We already know Ubisoft is one of the many third-party Wii U developers — it announced Killer Freaks From Outer Space at E3 2011 after all. The company's throwing more weight behind the platform though, now recruiting for a "AAA Wii U game" at its Quebec studio.

Two positions are available: senior engine programmer and, more interestingly, network programmer. The latter is described as:

The network programmer develops solutions for players and friends to connect and play together in real-time on a local network or the Internet. He works with designers and other game developers to help them innovate and exploit opportunities offered by the network. He works to ensure the best game experience possible for a group of players in separate locations.

Ubisoft Quebec isn't quite as famous as its Montreal and Paris brethren, thought it collaborated with Montreal on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin's Creed: Revelations and developed 2010's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands on Wii.

Assassin's Creed was announced for Wii U at E3; could Ubi Quebec be working on its multiplayer aspect?

Could it be Rainbow Six?....I heard that the game is coming to Xbox360 and PS3 next year....and that Ubisoft Montreal has worked on past titles.

.......because I haven't bought all of them yet, and I'd love a collection.

So Wii U has online connection, confirmed! Just kidding ;) I'd say it's Ghost Recon Online but I'm not sure if they announced what studios are developing this one.

@CybahPunkah Xbox is rumored to be in development. Sony releases a console every 10 years and they have confirmed that the PS3 will be on the market for another 4 years. There will be a PS4 but not any time soon

@Angelic_Lapras_King I wouldn't be too worried about that. It probably wouldn't have the AAA label if it was, unless they went pretty extreme with the Rabbids.

They developed Forgotten Sands for the Wii? This could be interesting, especially considering what they had to work with.

Imagine: You Punching Yourself in the Face
which would be a lot more satisfying than what lz is talking about D:

Imagine: Blowing up in a dumpster. ;)

Which would be hilarious. If it wasn't me. Or Mel Gibson. Or Jim Carrey. But maybe Nicholas Cage. Because his movies are terrible. Oh and Ben Stiller. And Jack Black. And that nerdy kid from Super Bad.

Wanting to do a AAA title and landing one is two different things. That's like me saying "I want to do great things!" It means nothing until I produce results. Show me the money, Ubi.

Assassin's Creed should not go on the Wii U. You think that a gamer that would like a game like Assasin's Creed would be played on a hardcore game console, like the Xbox. But heck, what do I know?
