Today, Ubisoft announced that it is developing a next-generation theme park.
Just in case you’re not familiar with Ubisoft, it’s a French multinational video game developer and publisher known for developing games for several acclaimed video game franchises including Far Cry, Ghost Recon, Just Dance, Rainbow Six, Prince Of Persia, Rayman, Splinter Cell, and Assassin’s Creed.
Combining a rich portfolio of world-renowned brands and an expertise in designing highly interactive gaming experiences, Ubisoft aims to revolutionise guests’ journeys
The project is being led by Ubisoft Motion Pictures, who has a successful track record of expanding Ubisoft’s game brands to theme parks with the launch of the award-winning* Rabbids Dark Ride at French park Futuroscope.
For its first next-generation theme park, Ubisoft Motion Pictures is partnering with RSG, co-owner and co-developer of Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS).
The planned 10,000 square meter indoor development will be located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – second most visited country in Asia** – and will feature innovative rides, attractions, and shows inspired by some of Ubisoft’s biggest franchises, such as Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance, and Rabbids.
Excited yet? The Ubisoft theme park is expected to start construction in 2017 and is scheduled to open in 2020. We be adding this to our list of top theme parks to visit in Asia!
