Ubisoft must have found TrackMania
creator Nadeo to really be speaking its language
, as the French publisher has acquired the, uh, French
developer in a bid to drift into the online gaming sector. "Through Nadeo, Ubisoft will gain an expert team, one of the best online technologies around as well as a flagship multiplayer game that enjoys an unrivaled reputation among a loyal and committed community," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot observed.
The acquisition of Nadeo comes just weeks after the developer announced
a true TrackMania
sequel, TrackMania 2,
at the Paris Games Festival.
