  • Ubisoft to invest $8 million through new CODEX education initiative

  • Ubisoft Montreal has unveiled the CODEX program, a new education initiative that will see the studio invest more than $8 million over the next 5 years to help teach the next generation about the ins and outs of video game development. 

    By working with a number of institutions and initiatives in Quebec, Ubisoft hopes to promote video game production as a educational tool, arm children and young adults with the skills they need to thrive in the connected world, and promote diversity and inclusion in the technology fields. 

    As well as providing a cash injection, Ubisoft Montreal employees will also spend 1,000 hours a year mentoring pupils.

    "To realize our ambition we are not simply setting up the next generation, we are preparing those open to a new world," said Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat.

    "We achieve this using methods based on entertainment, curiosity, and self-learning. Above all we'll do this in an open and collective manner in collaboration wit organizations, students, and teachers at all levels of education."
