Ubisoft Philippines Will Be Present at ESGS 2016 Haoson October 15, 2016 Analog, Events With the countdown to the biggest gaming event of the year rounding down to just a few more weeks. The E-Sports and Gaming Summit 2016 will have one of the world’s top game dev companies take part a big way in the three-day event. Ubisoft will be once again present in ESGS 2016. But this time they aren’t just bringing in their newest titles like Just Dance 2017 to their booth. They will also do a bit more in sharing and promoting to the event attendees about the opportunity their Philippine Studio will bring to local talents to enter the gaming industry. “We’re very excited to be back for this year’s ESGS. Our participation in one of the biggest gaming conventions definitely allows us to connect fans not just to our games but with Ubisoft Philippines,” shares Chip Go, General Manager of Ubisoft Philippines. With the upcoming launch of their first office in the Philippines scheduled early 2017, Go also sees ESGS as an opportunity for interested individuals who want to pursue a career in the industry. “As we establish our second office in South East Asia, looking for dynamic and passionate individuals to join our team is definitely a need. Gamers and enthusiasts who feel they have the natural ability to work in the industry can inquire at ESGS about opportunities that we have for them,” Go adds. Aside from job opportunities, attendees also have the chance to know more about Ubisoft and De La Salle University’s recently launched Bachelor of Science major in Game Development program. Set to begin its first term in 2017 in the DLSU Science and Technology Complex in Laguna, the program aims to groom local talents to create leaders and innovators in Asia’s growing game development industry. Interested applicants can inquire about the program and application requirements in the Ubisoft booth. As the program is still accepting applications, this can be the perfect time for you to pursue a career in the gaming industry.
