Yves Guillemot CEO :
When my brothers and I created Ubisoft back in 1986, we started out with a simple motivation: work with passionate people and make fun games. Today, to continue surprising our millions of fans all over the world, we're always on the lookout for new ways to push back the boundaries of creativity and innovation. Beyond simple games, we strive to create immersive and engaging creative worlds that not only offer moments of pure fun, escapism and adventure, but also opportunities for learning and self-discovery.
The video game industry is constantly evolving, and Ubisoft teams and I are eager to take up the next challenges in store so that you can have even more gaming pleasure.
Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO
