For some time Brawlhalla has been making some noise and forming their own community over the past few years on PC. Recently hitting over five million steam users and making its way to PS4, the smash brothers competitor even making their way into the Esports scene.
And now, Blue Mammoth Games has announced they will acquired by Ubisoft. In a statement released by Ubisoft on the acquisition:
With Brawlhalla, we’re getting a hugely popular and highly-profitable title that aligns with our strategy of expanding our audience and providing players with long-lasting, entertaining gaming experiences.
And as post by studio founder Matt Woomer, that they’re more than excited for what’s to come with this. And plan to exceed the boundaries even more than they already unexpectedly have.
“So, what does this mean for Brawlhalla? Only good things. Blue Mammoth will continue to run the game just as we always have. The studio will grow (slowly, we don’t want to mess up the good thing we have here by growing too fast.) We will have more stability and more resources to improve the game and add new features (including some long overdue). We will get opportunities to raise Brawlhalla’s profile among gamers. And we’ll be able to confidently share a roadmap with you for the next years of Brawlhalla development.”
We talked with the developers back at PAX East 2016, which you can check here.
