    Default Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, .... UBISOFT!?

    Ubisoft Expand and Move Into CGI Films
    Ubisoft today announced a significant expansion of its operations in Quebec, Canada. The company is looking to boost the number of team members in the province from 1,600 to 3,000 over the next six years, exceeding previous objectives by an additional 1,000 jobs.

    Where will all this new talent be used? There are two main objectives. Firstly, the company is looking to create 500 new videogame related positions by 2013, and secondly, Ubisoft will create a new production centre that will focus on CGI cinema content. The new studio will produce short films based on games in Ubisoft's portfolio, including an eight minute Assassin's Creed short. The CGI studio should have 500 staff members by 2013.
    Source and full article.

    God I hope not, that would suck. I don't mind cgi films but theres a feeling you get from live actors and hand drawn animation you just don't get from cgi.

    This will fail, as their movies will not play on cinemas that lack pixel shader 3.0 or something to that extent.

    Interesting. I think they could pull this off. I'm curious as to who their target audience would be and what movies they would make..

    As long as they have okay writers, I can't stand movies that are nothing but eye candy,
