Ubisoft is working like their lives depended on it recently.All their work has paid dividends with the acquisition of THQ Montreal as well as everything that comes with it.
Ubisoft is burning the candle at both ends recently and their work has paid dividends with the acquisition of THQ Montreal. The reason why that’s a big deal is Ubisoft also got the publishing rights to the upcoming South Park game, The Stick of Truth. “This deal adds experienced developers to our internal creative teams at a key moment in the cycle of the video game industry,” said Yannis Mallat, president of Ubisoft Montreal.
Ubisoft has got to be thinking “the rich get richer” in this instance because they also got a new intellectual property that THQ Montreal is working on. THQ Montreal will join Ubisoft’s dev team, which is already the second largest in-house dev team. Tough to see THQ having their problems but what is THQ’s loss is Ubisoft’s gain.
