Discreet, announced today that Ubi Soft Entertainment (http://www.ubi.com), one of the world's largest video game publishers, has joined the growing number of leading development studios to adopt and standardize their animation, modeling and rendering tools based on Discreet’s 3D technology solutions. Ubi Soft has agreed to upgrade existing licenses as part of its game development program to utilize Discreet 3ds max software throughout its European development studios, which encompasses over 200 animation software licenses. The agreement between Ubi Soft and Discreet represents the biggest European 3D software partnership to date, and follows the recent decision from Ubi Soft Canada to also purchase licenses for its Montreal-based development studio.
“We are very happy with the capabilities of 3ds max,” said Cedric Duchet, IT Purchasing Manager, Ubi Soft Entertainment. “We have used the software for many years and are pleased with the significant year-over-year feature enhancements implemented by Discreet and their new Subscription Program. We continually evaluate comparable 3D offerings on the market, and have taken the decision to standardize on 3ds max throughout our development sites, which helps us to keep ahead with our development tools.”
“Ubi Soft has been a long-time partner with Discreet, and we are honored
to receive their endorsement to upgrade licenses to our latest 3D software;
we appreciate Ubi Soft’s tremendous vote of confidence for our 3ds max
software—and this continued partnership,” said Keith Russell, European
Director, Software. “Discreet provides innovation, value and return on
investment (ROI) for our customers. Having Ubi Soft demonstrate their long term
commitment to us as ‘THE’ long term tool of choice—is a clear
signal to the game development industry that we’re both committed to deliver
cutting edge 3D tools and cutting edge game titles—whether it is for next
generation consoles, PC’s, or our new 3D game initiatives for mobile devices”.
