THQ Blocked from Ubi Poaching

GameInformer has word via French Canadian website Rue Frontenac that THQ has been C-blocked (court blocked) from attempting to lure employees from Ubisoft Montreal to THQ's upcoming Montreal studio. The THQ studio is still gearing up waiting for Patrice Désilets' non-compete clause to expire, and the court found Désilets in violation of this clause by hiring former colleagues from Ubisoft Montreal. This was followed by overtures from THQ to other Ubisoft developers through former Ubisoft employee Adolfo Gomez-Urda, who has now been added to this injunction.

Bah stop hating on Quebec you bastard!

I love non compete clauses. Man it must feel good to be a wanted employee where another studio wants to get you so they make the grass greener on their side.

Tax breaks aside I don't understand why anyone would set up shop in Quebec, there' no way you'll attract the talent you need there as Quebec is a place to visit but you wouldn't want to live there. The onyl 2 cities that would attract them are Toronto or Vancouver.

I can't help but think that anything that's bad for UBI is a good thing for the rest of us.

attempting to lure employees from Ubisoft Montreal to THQ

Ubisoft to THQ? That doesn't sound like much of an improvement...
