Asobo Studio SARL is a French video game developer based in Bordeaux and founded in 2002. The studio has developed 17 video games, including video game adaptations of several Pixar movies, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and the 2020 version of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
In 2002, twelve video game developers decided to work together. They bought the rights to the multiplayer PlayStation 2 game Super Farm and founded Asobo Studio. Their first game was published in 2003 by Ignition Entertainment. During the following years, the studio developed several games for various platforms, until being chosen by publisher THQ to create the video game adaptation of Pixar film Ratatouille. Asobo started increasing its growth speed, recruiting about 20% new employees a year, leading to two separate production lines. Asobo was selected to develop the video game adaptation of Pixar's following films WALL-E and Up.
During the 2008 Games Convention, the video game publisher Codemasters announced Fuel, a racing game developed by Asobo Studio. Fuel was released in 2009 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC. The studio worked on Kinect Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure for Xbox 360 Kinect between 2010 and 2012. The game features a scanning process, enabling the player to create their own Pixar avatar, looking like them. It features characters from Ratatouille, The Incredibles, Cars, Up and Toy Story. The game was published by Microsoft and Disney Interactive Studios in March 2012.
In 2014, Asobo Studio partnered with Ubisoft to release Monopoly Family Fun pack on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, including Monopoly Plus, My Monopoly and Monopoly Deal, as well as The Crew for Xbox 360. In 2016, Asobo Studio partners with Microsoft again to release two games on HoloLens: Fragments and Young Conker. Both games are available in the Developer Edition, released on March 30, 2016. Asobo Studio was the first independent developer in Holographic Entertainment and won the 2016 French Video Game Creator Prize awarded by Syntec Numérique EY and SNJV. In 2017, the studio announced A Plague Tale: Innocence, an adventure game, released for PC and consoles in 2019 and published by Focus Home Interactive. They also worked with Engine Software to develop Monopoly for Nintendo Switch, which came out later that year. Their latest release was Microsoft Flight Simulator, published on August 18, 2020 for Microsoft Windows.
