In the summer of 2006, four fellows chucked out their tapered jeans and pleated slacks and decided to slip into something a little more suitable for adventure. They all shared a common vision: Create a studio with a sense of community and games that are innovative, original, and above all, a helluva lotta fun to play.
In 2009 Action Pants was acquired by Ubisoft when they placed the company up as collateral on a contract for a unknown title and failed to deliver said title. Upon being acquired by Ubisoft for free after defaulting on the contract they were renamed to Ubisoft Vancouver.
On January 17th, 2012 Ubisoft announced that they were closing the studio.
