French video game giant Ubisoft, known for popular franchises such as Assassin's Creed, Far Cry and Watch Dogs, has announced that it will be closing its South Korean branch by the end of April 2024. The decision is part of a global restructuring for the company.

Ubisoft Korea was established in 2002 and has played a significant role in the South Korean gaming market, handling localization, marketing, and esports operations. Through the branch's efforts, Korean gamers have been able to enjoy their favorite games in their native language and be part of the global gaming community.

However, as stated in Ubisoft Korea's letter, "it is time for new changes and innovations." Despite the closure, the French company promises to continue releasing localized games and other activities in Korea.

In its letter, Ubisoft Korea expresses its sincere gratitude to all Korean fans for their many years of love and support.
