A popular software company is upping its game in Winnipeg.

Ubisoft, a video game developer based in France, opened a local branch less than two months ago.

The Ubisoft office in the Merchants Building is ballooning from 3,500 square feet to almost 20,000.

Managing Director Darryl Long told 680 CJOB that Ubisoft is planning to hire 100 new employees to work in the expanded space.

“Today is an exciting step, having secured the long-term space we want to grow into,” he said, “but also toward continuing our future in the booming techno-creative hub in the Exchange District, which we have come to love.”
