STARLINK: BATTLE FOR FANS BEGINS
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is due out in stores Oct. 16, but has been in the works five years. Ubisoft Toronto has invested a lot in this game, which features a new universe of characters. The company saw a small team grow to over 100 people, enlisting all the usual folks needed to create games — producers, level designers, graphics specialists — but also toy makers and designers, and the need to get a manufacturing pipeline up and running. It’s a gamble the company hopes pays off in gamers.
