Ubisoft announced the acquisition of 1492 Studio, a game development studio specializing in the development of free-to-play episodic and interactive stories on mobile.
This is the second or third mobile developer Ubi has bought in the past few years. Looks like they're running toward the mobile market now, as opposed to the tiptoeing they were doing. It's understandable to expand, but as long as they don't bring over those mobile mechanics there's no harm here. I would hate a repeat of the Konami situation and be able to look back on this moment and know this was our warning.
Ubi use these guys well
