According to CVG, the developers of Child of Light have been made a core team at Ubisoft Montreal and is already working on its next project.
“We are super happy with Child of Light. The team did a good job and the game had a great reception,” Ubisoft Montreal’s VP of Creative, Lionel Raynaud told CVG. “The team learned a lot about RPG mechanics during development and this has resulted in us creating a core team. The people who made this game now want to work together again, whether it’s on a small game or not.”
“This dynamic has incredible value in the industry and it’s what we want to do: we want to create core teams that want to make great games,” he continued. “So yes, we will encourage other initiatives like Child of Light and there’s a chance that we will have many more games like that in the future. I already have many different projects that are in the pitch stage – I even had one in my office this morning, which was super exciting.”
Child of Light was powered by the UbiArt Framework engine, and helmed by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Far Cry 3 creative director Patrick Plourde. Plourde told CVG that he has now left the Child of Light studio to work on another project.
