Ubisoft, the video game publisher behind such blockbuster franchise as Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell, has announced plans for a theme park in Malaysia.
Spearheaded by the company's Ubisoft Motion Pictures division, the "next-generation" park is scheduled to open in 2020 in a 10,000-square-meter indoor complex in Kuala Lumpur, with rides, shows and other attractions based on Ubisoft properties.
“Ubisoft’s intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game,” Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, said in a statement.
Ubisoft worked last year with France's Futuroscope to create a 3D dark ride based on Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time. For this project, the company will partner with Malaysian theme-park developer RSG, co-owner of Movie Animation Park Studios, which will feature attractions based on DreamWorks animated properties.
RSG will own and operate the new park, while Ubisoft will maintain creative control. No details have been revealed about which Ubisoft properties will be featured, or even the park's name.
This news comes four months after Nintendo announced an agreement to bring its video game characters to Universal Parks & Resorts.
