    Multiple French-speaking news outlets are reporting that a dramatic situation is taking place at Ubisoft Montreal. According to Journal de Quebec, TVA Nouvelles, and footage from Twitter users near the area, suspects have taken "dozens" of hostages inside Ubisoft's office. Police are currently recorded as being on the scene, approaching the building on Saint-Laurent Boulevard. Currently, sources claim that employees are hiding under their desks, are trapped on the roof, or have escaped the building.

    [UPDATE]

    Jason Schreier is reporting that Ubisoft employees have received security instructions and are evacuating, though the actual cause is unknown at this point, and that they're working with the police.


    [UPDATE2]

    The call has been reported as a hoax. No one was injured, and all employees appear to have safely left the building.

    Not what I was expecting to see on temp's front page. Those are terrible news, I just hope everyone gets out of it unharmed.

    Well, more precisely, it's the building where Ubisoft Studio are
    But there are more bureau in that building
    Apparently, it isn't confirmed if Ubisoft is the target

    In before swatting attempts just got even more fun.

    So
    And this is apparently unacceptable? Now we have had some edge cases before on what may or may not
    I thought it was a fairly standard character trait. Just when I thought twitter could not get any sillier.

    I am not religious, but I am very honestly hoping and wishing for this not to end in tragedy.
