BioWare and Ubisoft Veterinarians Open New Studio

As they are, a group of developers with past experience at Big Time Studios BioWare and Ubisoft have come together to shrug the corporate chain and create new game studios. Mikelaidlaw, Jeff Skalski, Frédéric St-Laurent B. and Thomas Giroux have collaborated to create a new studio, Yellow Brick Games, in Quebec City.

Laidlaw (Mike, Mind, not Mark) is best known as a former creative director of the Dragon Age series before leaving BioWare in 2017. He later joined Ubisoft Quebec in 2018 and left Ubisoft in early 2020. Ubisoft reportedly canceled the unpublished Arthurian RPG in which he was involved.

Ubisoft seems to be a common denominator among its founders. St-Laurent B. was the lead game designer for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and the producer for Skalski. Giroux has many years of experience in Ubisoft, but more recently in Activision.

They have now founded Yellow Brick with Giroux as CEO and Skalski as COO and Executive Producer. Laidlaw will be Chief Creative Officer with St-Laurent B. as Game Director. They say that a team of 15 people is made up of people who work from home in multiple countries.

“The studio was founded by a group of industry veterans working with agile teams to work on projects that enable innovative and emergent gameplay created by small, highly skilled teams. “I did,” says Yellow Brick.

“We learned a lot from working on a world-class multi-year project with thousands of colleagues. We want to take a different approach,” Skalski told the gaming industry. I am. “Leveraging a small talented team where people come first, we create a wonderful world and experience that everyone else can enjoy. The market is moving fast and influencing where we go. I don’t want to catch up and chase when I can. These goals allowed me to set up Yellow Brick Games. “

The studio hasn’t announced its first project yet, so we have to wait a bit for the news.
