Ubisoft acquires long-term partner Quazal

Multiplayer middleware company joins ranks of French publisher

Ubisoft has acquired Quazal, the specialist multiplayer middleware company which has worked with the publisher for many years, most recently on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Quazal is the company behind Rendez-Vous and Net-Z technology and has worked with many other developers and publishers in interactive media as well as Ubisoft.

"Quazal and Ubisoft have worked closely together for several years now to create amazing online experiences for our major brands," said the executive director of Ubisoft's technology group, Quentin Gallet.

The engineers at Quazal have honed their expertise over 12 years and this acquisition guarantees Ubisoft a solid technology that will help us to attain the ambitious objectives of our online strategy."

Whilst Quazal is now an official subsidiary of Ubisoft, its technology will remain available for licensing elsewhere.
