Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai both are new studios. The Pune location was founded in 2008. Why it’s important to mention that it’s led by Indian Studios? So here is the answer, In India, game development is still an unknown carrier. Most of the gamers are leaned towards mobile gaming. Nowadays gambling games are promoting themselves as “the games”.

The AAA titles requires investments, big financing budgets, absurd polishing and design. If you see from business point of view developing AAA games from India, most of the games are only focused on mobile and casual gaming. So the return on investments for these casual games is really good. But its the opposite for the AAA titles.
