    very interesting news that ubisoft have picked it up they aren't knowen for sports titles really. I guess ubisoft execpt it to sell well given its european angle and it also gives them a corner in another genre. hopefully this means that the swordfish guys will be back on the board as well to give us info. ubisoft seem to be pretty good with the community with forums on there site. good news for us down under as ubisoft distribute very well down here. I believe in nz their games are distributed by monacao corp or something like that.

    Can't complain, after Ninty, Ubi are my favourite publishers. But great news, let's hope this one comes off nicely [​IMG]

    Great news Locks!

    Well done Ubisoft for picking up the title. Would have been an absolute tragedy if no one took RC2006 on board. Good to see that the Ubi guys are willing to take a risk on something not totally a guarantee success. Also good to see them willing to help out minor titles rather than sticking with the big ones.

    Here hoping! [​IMG]

    Hasnt UBISOFT got some kind of affiliation with Lucas Arts, or Tom Clancy??

    This is great news, although it is strange that we had 3 publishers in 6 months for this title

    For some reason something tells me UBI get down with the community...I've seen forums or something, but cant quiet put my finger on it [​IMG]

    ubiosft publish the tom clancy games not sure if they develop them. ubi defintely get down with the community they have forums for all of their games. ubi seem very limited in the sports genere I did see a forum for and1 games on the site but think that was the only one. ubi though are a one of the best publishes in the buisness without question and have picked up what imo will be a good game from swordfish.

    Ubi have plenty of good series/titles:

    Tom Clancy Stuffs (Splinter Cell, Rainbow 6 etc.)
    Far Cry
    Silent Hunter
    Prince of Persia
    Beyond Good and Evil

    They've got a great track record, this should gome out nicely [​IMG]
  12. ubisoft have got a good track record, but they have managed to produce some flops (chessmaster or charlies angels anyone?). Sure, like most i want this game to be great, but just because a game has a new publisher dosent mean its going to be any better. Still, good that its getting a release.

    well publishers normally doesn't do much execpt help with the marketing and distribution side of things. sometimes they also help fund the developement but i don't think ubi will be doing that in this case. there are execption like ea who tend to either involve their staff with the development or lend their resources to the development studio. I think ubi in this case will just distribute and promote the game for swordfish who will be responsible for what the game is like

    They also published/developed:
    Brothers in Arms
    Cold Fear
    Champions of Norrath
  15. I have completed Rainbow Six 3 and black arrow many times, as they rock.

    But Cold fear looks like a must have.
