Worm turns for UbiSoft

French publisher grabs multi-million selling franchise

Source - press release

In something of a publishing coup, UbiSoft have announced today that they will be handling the next installment in Team 17 Software's multi-million selling Worms series, previously distributed by Virgin Interactive. "Ubi Soft were an obvious choice as a partner to take Worms to the next level", according to the developer's commercial director Debbie Bestwick. "Team17 were looking for the right leading global partner and with Ubi Soft's world-wide distribution into 52 countries, their strong character marketing approach and their superb developer relations we are looking forward to building a strong relationship between the two companies."

The newly announced Worms Blast will be the first game in the long-running series to feature a combination of 3D graphics and real-time action, while hopefully retaining that classic Worms gameplay and daft-annelids-with-big-guns ethos we have all come to know and love. Expect to see the end result popping up this autumn on PC, PlayStation 2, GameCube and GameBoy Advance.
