Report: Police Operation Underway Near Ubisoft Montreal Office | IGN

Canadian news outlets are reporting a police situation taking place at the building where Ubisoft Montreal is based. Montreal PD has confirmed there is a police operation in the sector where the offices are located but didn’t provide any further details.

The Montreal Journal first reported a possible hostage situation in Montreal near where Ubisoft’s offices are located, on Saint-Laurent Boulevard in the Mile End area of Montreal. The Montreal police have not confirmed any details beyond a police operation, however.

IGN reached out to the Montreal Police’s media box where an automated briefing said a “police operation” is happening at the location of Saint-Laurent and St-Vieateur, but that they are still verifying the situation.

The Montreal police added that people should “avoid the sector.”

IGN has also contact Ubisoft but have not heard back from the company yet.
