Starting from a report that came to the Montreal police last Friday, the Ubisoft Montreal developer office was shocked by the serious hostage case. This incident had caused panic in the office area, where some employees had evacuated and even climbed onto the building to protect themselves. It all started with an emergency call of 911 which was then responded by the Montreal police by sending a squad of TVA Nouvelles to secure the location.
After further investigation, it turned out that the situation at the Ubisoft Montreal office was safe and there were no signs of any reported hostage cases. Although the investigation did find that the emergency call came from the Ubisoft Montreal office, it is likely that the call was a hoax created to cause panic.

According to reports, this situation was under control and there were no victims at all, it’s just that the hoax call still left a suspicious aroma, especially where TVA Nouvelles said that the perpetrator had threatened to blow up the building if he did not hand over the ransom requested, which was around USD 2 million. The latest report from the police also confirmed that they would continue to investigate and find out the source of the call.
