Redlynx co-founder discusses Ubisoft buyout

More time to spend on making games

November 5, 2011

Trials developer RedLynx says that their day-to-day operations won’t be any different now, despite being bought out by mega-publisher Ubisoft. According to co-founder and creative director Anttl Ilvessuo, it just means they’ll have more time to spend on making games.

Talking to Edge, Ilvessuo expresses his happiness over the partnership, saying that whether or not they are considered an indie developer was never significant to them.

“For us, it has never been a question of being independent or non-independent,” he said. “Even though we were independent, we always looked for the right kind of partnerships.

“Having had good success in some of the industry’s growth areas, and being able to prove that we can keep on developing great games, it is natural that different publishers have been interested in working with us.

“But there is no need to think about that anymore. We are really excited to be part of Ubisoft, and now more than ever we are fully focused on the most important thing: developing great games.”

He also added that he was happy to have access to the vast resources in the “Ubisoft family”.

“Ubisoft has 25 different studios in its family, so that’s a lot of people we can reach out to and get additional services and support, and share information, technology and best practices with.”

Trials Evolution is due for release on Xbox Live Arcade sometime next year.
