Ubisoft Expanding Into Sports Games
Ubisoft also announced that it has acquired the technology, tools and source code shipped in Microsoft Game Studios team sports games, including NHL Rivals (hockey), NFL Fever (football), NBA Inside Drive (basketball) and MLB Inside Pitch (baseball).
"There is still room for innovation in the sports genre and Ubisoft has some great ideas that we're looking forward to implementing," said Yves Guillemot, president and chief executive officer of Ubisoft. "We hope to not only offer sports fans games that have a unique flair and character, but also something that will take advantage of the fabulous capacities of current and next-generation consoles."
As of now, no other titles other than Vijay Singh Golf have been announed, but we'll keep you posted when Ubisoft tips its hand.
