Ubisoft’s ‘CSI: Hidden Crimes’ Named Best Tablet Game - 2015
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.
