Ubisoft have bought Swedish studio Massive Entertainment (of beloved Ground Control and World in Conflict fame) from ActiBlizzard. Hooray! The studio will live to create another base-buildingless RTS with splendid visuals, which will probably be in-progress WIC sequel Soviet Assault, which was also purchased.
Ubi executive director Christine Burgess-Quemard had this impeccable comment: “Massive has put together a group of some of the most confirmed and recognized creators in the industry and I know that their talent and innovation will allow them to seamlessly integrate into our worldwide network of production studios.”
Hopefully they’ll make some more games with fat explosions and oh-so-clever timed resource/reinforcement multiplayer mechanics too, eh CBQ?
