French President, Emmanuel Macron, vowed to rebuild the cathedral after the inferno.
The 850-year-old Gothic building Notre Dame Cathedral has attracted millions of visitors annually.
Ubisoft historian Maxime Durand said that while he doubts the French game-maker's digital plans will be needed, he hopes the game can still help the renovation in a small way, if only by reminding people of the structure's beauty.
"It's a fundamental step, and very complex, because it's hard to send workers into a monument whose vaulted ceilings are swollen with water", Pericolo told France-Info.
Furthermore, he said a number of loose stones on the north facade will have to be taken off the building in case they fall off and cause further damage to the buttresses.
The latter is one of the most recent recreations of the iconic cathedral and now developer Ubisoft is giving everyone a chance to behold the majesty of Notre-Dame, even if only virtually. Almost $1 billion has been pledged for the cathedral's restoration. Bern told broadcaster France-Info that 880 million euros ($995 million) has been raised since the fire.
A spokesman for the Paris prosecutor's office later clarified that it was church staff, not firefighters, who looked into the initial alarm.
About 30 people have already been questioned in the investigation. "Incredible, indescribable, I just can't explain it", said Nadia Pascassio-Comte, in Strasbourg. "Notre-Dame is an integral part of Paris, a city to which we are deeply connected". Recreating it fell mainly to artist Caroline Miousse, who worked with a team including Durand and a texture artist for 14 months.
Later Wednesday evening, bells will toll at cathedrals around France in honor of Notre Dame.
