I am excited to partner with the group’s teams around the world to bring social experience in our games to new heights.”While social elements in multiplayer games have been a factor in the space for over a decade, the rise of service games has put an increased focus not only on social communication but games evolving into social spaces for shared events, such as Fortnite‘s concerts.“Today, games are more than entertainment: they are virtual spaces where people can build connections and share meaningful experiences,” said Marie-Sophie de Waubert, senior vice president of studio operations in a press release.“Social experience is an increasingly essential element of Ubisoft’s strategy to reach new audiences and we look forward to welcoming Bernd to the Global Creative Office, where he will work closely with our production teams to deliver on our vision of games as places where every player can be their authentic self and find their community.”Ubisoft’s PvP game, publicly referred to as ‘Project Q’, was recently canceled.
