On March 17 2009, a port of the Xbox 360 version of the game Tom Clancy's HAWX was released on PC with the help of six of the studio's employees. As of March 2010 the team included sixteen people, with the possibility of future expansion. In an interview later that year with website PlayGround.ru[3] it was revealed that, the studio was working on adding support for the game engine, developed by the main company, as well as porting unannounced games for the PC and Mac OS versions of games and collaborating with other Ubisoft studios.

The company is specialized in bringing Ubisoft’s franchises to home computers. It had worked on titles including From Dust, Driver: San Francisco, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Assassin's Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity ,Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Rogue and Trials Fusion.
