Thanks to its first successes like Assassin's Creed Pirates, Ubisoft Paris Mobile still contributes to the influence of Ubisoft's brands today with the development of titles like The Mighty Quest Rogue Palace in partnership with Neflix but also new licenses like Wild Arena Survivors. Other secret projects are yet to be announced and remain focused on gameplay, a key priority for the studio.

And let's not forget the Howrse phenomenon, a community equestrian management game with 10 million players in 25 countries: a free-to-play web and mobile reference with remarkable longevity.

With over 200 talents grouped in small and agile teams, the studio works daily to offer players new quality of experience.
