Ubisoft Australia Donates $30,000 to Help with Australia Fires
Ubisoft continues to do great things both in and outside of the gaming industry.
In case you haven’t been following the news, Australia is undergoing a major fire crisis for months now which has led to numerous deaths and leaving thousands of people homeless. It has gotten so bad that the United States has begun sending firefighters to help extinguish the fires. Thankfully, so many people have been donating to charities and non-profits to help with the crisis including Ubisoft. The company that is known for popular franchises like Assassin’s Creed, Rainbox Six and Watch Dogs donated $30,000 to the Australian Red Cross Disaster and Recovery Relief Fund through its Australia office based in Sydney. This isn’t the first time Ubisoft has made a major contribution to a good cause.
The bushfire crisis has devastated communities across the nation and the scenes of loss are heartbreaking.
We’ve heard the calls requesting we create in-game items to encourage donations, however this takes considerable development time and we feel immediate action is required. pic.twitter.com/7JPg0QPOqQ

Back in April last year, the famous Notre Dame partially burned to the ground in France and Ubisoft donated over half a million dollars to help with the reconstruction of the prominent building along with giving gamers Assassin’s Creed Unity away for free.
It is really great to see a big company like Ubisoft helping out where they can in these types of situations. I just hope that more companies follow suit in the future. The company potentially has a big year lined up with the release of Watch Dogs Legion, Gods & Monsters, Rainbox Six Quarantine as well as the highly rumored Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok. Keep checking in as we update you on all of Ubisoft’s upcoming titles and if you can please donate to the Australian Red Cross Disaster and Recovery Relief Fund or any other organization that is helping with the fires in Australia.
