Ubisoft Acquires Wolfpack
8:07 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Ubisoft yesterday announced they were acquiring Wolfpack Studios, creators of the cross-platform massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Shadowbane. As Ubisoft was the publisher for the game already, this simply brings in the MMO closer to their organization and seems to encourage further stability in the game itself.

A related interview posted yesterday at PC IGN talks with Ubisoft's Jason Rubinstein about the decision and what it means for both companies. Here's a short clip:

IGN: What was the relationship between Wolfpack and Ubisoft prior to this announcement? What's the current relationship?

Jason Rubinstein: Due to the special requirements of developing and operating massively-multiplayer online games, Ubisoft and Wolfpack had a very integrated relationship from the start. Once we started to run a live closed beta, things became particularly close. Similar to the Red Storm folks with our highly successful Tom Clancy franchise, the acquisition now allows allow the "former" Wolfpack team to focus solely on continued game development and support for Shadowbane as well as the opportunity to work within our studio structure to look at other MMOs.
