It seems Ubisoft wants to be next to get in on the video game theme park action, as the publisher has revealed plans to create a “next-generation” theme park in Malaysia. The park is planned to be 10,000 square meters, including rides, shows, and other stuff you find at theme parks (like over-priced merchandise). The theme park will be in Kuala Lumpur and is set to have its gates open sometime in 2020.
Senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Jean de Rivières, is leading the project and he shared his thoughts on the development:
“Ubisoft’s intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game. Ubisoft will produce all digital media for the rides, and help design guests’ journey into the park to ensure the visitors’ experience is at its best.
“Malaysia is the second-most-visited country in Asia. There is room for multiple projects to take root in the region and a growing middle class with an increasing income and appetite for entertainment.” — Jean de Rivières
