Arabnet - The Quarterly - - Industry Stories -

Ubisoft Emi­rates game de­vel­op­ment stu­dio won the 2015 Tabby Award for Best Tablet Game with the first game de­vel­oped by its new team, CSI: Hid­den Crimes. Launched in May 2014, this free mys­tery ad­ven­ture game based on the pop­u­lar CBS TV se­ries (CSI: Las Ve­gas) has crossed the bar of 28 mil­lion users, ac­cord­ing to Yan­nick Theler, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at Ubisoft Emi­rates. Although the game is based on a US se­ries, it marks Ubisoft Emi­rates’ first game de­vel­oped in-house in the MENA. In ad­di­tion to the team’s ef­forts, the stu­dio ben­e­fited from the in­put of Jack Gu­towitz, a writer for CSI: Las Ve­gas who worked on mak­ing the sto­ry­lines and di­a­logue au­then­tic and true to the orig­i­nal TV show. “We are re­leas­ing new con­tent, a new episode, and new fea­tures ev­ery two weeks, and we have done this since the launch of the game over a year ago,” said Theler. The Abu Dhabi stu­dio hopes to be­come one of the most suc­cess­ful satel­lite stu­dios to re­lease mo­bile games. “We are aim­ing to dou­ble the size of the stu­dio within three to five years,” said Theler.
