Ubisoft has consummated its relationship with 1492 Studio. The publisher today announced that it has acquired the developer of the Is It Love? series of free-to-play episodic mobile games.
"Is It Love? already is one of the leaders in episodic, narrative-driven mobile games, with a highly-engaged community of players," Ubisoft Mobile executive director Jean-Michel Detoc said. "This deal is in keeping with our strategy of reaching new audiences through smart, targeted, and highly profitable acquisitions."
Is It Love? games are choose-your-own-adventure style dating games where players are put into themed stories with potential paramours such as a vampire, a rock star, or a co-worker.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
[CORRECTION]: Contrary to the original report, Ubisoft has said it expects the deal to be immediately accretive to its earnings. We regret the error.
