Production Technologies

Ubisoft Anvil

Anvil, was crafted for the first Assassin’s Creed game and helped define the open-world genre. Designed to be modular to fit any project, it has since been used for dozens of other AAA titles, from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege to Immortals Fenyx Rising, and supports a huge variety of game genres and platforms. The Anvil team continuously focuses on evolving the toolset to remain the industry’s best for creating large-scale open-world games in ultra-collaborative production environments.

Ubisoft Snowdrop

The powerful Snowdrop engine is built with the philosophy to empower creators to do things better, not bigger. Its tools suite focuses on iteration speed and short compile times, giving developers the freedom to experiment and prototype faster. Its unique node graph system makes it easy to adapt to new ideas and is a perfect canvas for anyone to add new facilities to it. A game-agnostic technology with a powerful render engine, Snowdrop has proven its versatility in powering many genres.

Ubisoft Scalar

Ubisoft Scalar unlocks the full power and flexibility of cloud computing to enable unprecedented freedom and scale for the games of tomorrow. Its unique architecture turns game engine systems into cloud-based microservices to free game developers from single-machine hardware limitations. Thanks to this cloud-native approach, creators can build previously impossible game worlds and simulations, opening the door for a new world of possibilities in gaming.
