Developer to expand team with openings for creative directors, senior gameplay programmers and GUI artists

Newcastle-based studio Ubisoft Reflections is working with the publisher’s Montreal team on its upcoming new IP Watch Dogs.

The studio is also looking to expand its development team to work on the title, with openings for creative directors, senior gameplay programmers and GUI artists currently available.

No confirmation was given however on what area of development Reflections would be working on for the title.

"Reflections has been attentively watching the reaction to Watch Dogs at E3,” said Ubisoft Reflections studio manager Giselle Stewart.

“The studio is very excited to be working with Ubisoft Montreal on this new IP, and is currently expanding its Newcastle-based team developing for the title.

"We have openings available for talented Creative Directors, Senior Gameplay Programmers and experienced GUI Artists and applicants can put themselves forward by visiting Ubisoft’s website.”

Ubisoft Reflections has previously developed titles such as Driver: San Francisco and is also working with the Montreal studio on Far Cry 3.

The recently revealed Watch Dogs stunned its E3 audience with its striking visuals of a near-future setting in which the player can hack into phones and traffic systems.

The title is expected to be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
