French publisher Ubisoft today announced it had acquired Finland-based developer RedLynx, the team behind the remarkably popular downloadable Trials series.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained the acquisition. He said, “Their expertise in asynchronous online games and physics-based game mechanics provides us with a great opportunity to bring their powerful brands, most notably Trials, to an even broader range of fast-growing digital platforms.”
The next title in the Trials series, Trials Evolution, is due out on Xbox Live Arcade later this year. We went hands-on with the game at PAX Prime, and posted our thoughts right over here.
