According to information sent to Examiner.com today, "Assassin's Creed 4's" publisher has acquired Related Designs, which has been a leader in developing PC strategy games over the years.

With Ubisoft now owning the entire company, they are choosing to keep the development team together so they can work on the upcoming browser-based free-to-play MMO title "Might & Magic Heroes Online."

Odile Limpach, who is the managing director at Ubisoft's Blue Byte studio, spoke about the acquisition and where he expects things to go from here.

"Bringing the talented teams from Related Designs into the fold at Ubisoft is a mutually beneficial evolution of the relationship that we've had with this great studio for the past six years.

"This extremely fruitful cooperation can now advance thanks to the joint teams of Blue Byte and Related Designs more easily sharing experiences and resources.

"Together we will continue developing awesome games, including 'Might and Magic Heroes Online, which we hope will become a leading free-to-play title for Ubisoft," Limpach said.

"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" is expected to be released this coming fall on current and next-generation consoles.
