The Crew Developer Ivory Tower Aquired By Ubisoft

In a predictable turn of events, the developer behind The Crew, Ivory Tower, is now officially a part of Ubisoft, according to a post in the Ubisoft Blog today.

Ivory Tower presented Ubisoft with their idea for The Crew a couple of years ago, and the two developers worked together to make the game happen. The Crew was released on December 2 last year and has been a success. The first expansion titled “Wild Run” will be coming out this November with more assistance from Ubisoft Reflections.

After years of working on The Crew with Ivory Tower, Ubisoft said they decided that the team’s expertise would be beneficial for the both of them.

, summed up their relationship well in this quote for the blog:

“We’ve always enjoyed a very positive relationship with Ubisoft,” said Ahmed Boukhelifa,  Managing Director at Ivory Tower. “Working together on The Crew, and celebrating its success, made us both understand that we have huge potential in continuing to work together in the future. By joining Ubisoft, the team at Ivory Tower will continue to benefit from Ubisoft’s infrastructure, support, tools, technology and vision. In return, we will contribute our own expertise to the broader Ubisoft story.”

Ubisoft also noted that the new Ubisoft team is still working hard keeping The Crew up to date, and also on the upcoming expansion on November 17.
