Ubisoft Entertainment (pronounced: yoo-bee-soft)[1] is a French computer and video game publisher and developer headquartered in Montreuil-sous-Bois, France.[2] They are the publishers of Rocket: Robot on Wheels. The company has facilities in over twenty countries, with notable studios in Montreal and Quebec City, Canada.[3]


The five brothers of the Guillemot family founded Ubisoft as a computer game publisher in 1986 in France (Brittany).[4] Yves Guillemot, the former chairman and CEO, soon made deals with Electronic Arts, Sierra On-Line, and MicroProse to distribute their games in France. By the end of the decade, Ubisoft began expanding to other markets, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Ubisoft became a publicly traded company in 1996 and continued to expand to offices around the globe, opening locations in Shanghai and Montreal.
