Software developer Ubisoft has announced that it is to create 200 new jobs as it opens a 'consumer relationship centre' in Newcastle Upon Tyne. The company has confirmed that the centre will result in the initial creation of 75 jobs, but that will rise to more than 100 by the end of 2015. Ubisoft expects that eventually the hub will employ 200 workers, though it is not sure when all these positions will be filled. A subsidiary Ubisoft reflections already operates in the city and its success was instrumental in Newcastle being selected for this latest development.
