SEGA buys up digi-dev Three Rings Design

SEGA has announced its acquisition of Three Rings Design in a move that the company hopes will increase its foothold in the digital gaming market.

Never heard of Three Rings? It’s the team is responsible for puzzle-MMORPG Puzzle Pirates and Spiral Knights.

In the short-term this won’t have any drastic effects. Three Rings will continue to support Spiral Knights as well as developing a Doctor Who MMO for the BBC. We’re sure the team already has some super-secret plans in effect with SEGA, though.
