The police activity around Ubisoft's Montreal office has not been confirmed to be related to any hostage situation.

Police there are simply calling it a "police operation."

Further reports indicate this may have been an incident of "swatting" where someone calls the police to report a fake crime or incident that urges the police to send in SWAT teams.
