Wildly successful indie developer RedLynx is now a part of French mega-publisher Ubisoft. RedLynx announced the acquisition this morning (evening for the Finland-based outfit) via its forums
, where company CEO Rero Virtala explained the decision. "We were attracted by Ubisoft's focus on creativity and quality," he said, also pointing to the publisher's "long-term strategy on both the traditional and digital distribution video game markets."
Ubisoft has been pushing quality digital titles hard over the last year, with everything from unique one-offs like Outland
and From Dust
to re-releases of classics like TMNT
, Prince of Persia
, and Beyond Good & Evil HD
. The publisher was no doubt attracted to RedLynx's massively popular Trials
series, which is set to receive a sequel
in the coming months.
