Ubisoft has announced it plans to construct a “next generation” theme park in Malaysia
Publisher Ubisoft is teaming up with Malaysian company RSG to construct a “next generation” theme park based on properties such as Assassin’s Creed, Rabbids and Just Dance.
Set to open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at some point in 2020, the theme park will take up 10,000 square meters of land.
Ubisoft wish to build on the success and popularity of its existing properties whilst expanding upon past ventures in the theme park business.
The company debuted its Rabbid’s Dark Ride at French theme park Futuroscope in 2014, which seems to have gone down well.
Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, had this to say:
“Together we are creating a place where every guest is a player, every ride is a playground, every visit is a game.”
“In RSG, we’ve found a partner with a successful track record in working with international brands, a shared ambition to design the family destination of the future, and a wealth of expertise in theme park development.”
In other Ubisoft news, the company recently dropped the first details on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed film.
Michael Fassbender will fill the lead role, portraying a new assassin called Callum Lynch.
The motion picture will take place in the same universe as the games, adding new characters to the mythos instead of recreating existing ones.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the latest entry in the popular franchise will launch on October 23 for PS4 and Xbox One, with a slight delay on PC.
