Ubisoft Buys Brawlhalla Developer Blue Mammoth Games

Ubisoft has acquired Brawlhalla developer Blue Mammoth Games, the company announced Friday.

Blue Mammoth is a studio based out of Atlanta, Georgia, that is made up of 21 employees. Brawlhalla is currently the most played fighting game on Steam, and is among the top performing free-to-play games on PS4, according to Ubisoft. Ubisoft did not disclose the terms of the deal.

In a press release, President of Ubisoft NCSA Laurent Detoc said that the company is excited to acquire a studio that “is expert at developing and running scalable, competitive, multiplayer online games” and that Blue Mammoth would fit in well with their collection of studios.

“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,” Detoc said.

“We’re looking forward to leveraging Ubisoft’s expertise and resources to continue developing and
supporting Brawlhalla for the long term, and to benefiting from their help in bringing the game to new players,” said Matthew Woomer and Lincoln Hamilton, Blue Mammoth Games founders, in a statement.

The addition of Blue Mammoth to Ubisoft’s portfolio fits in with the company’s commitment to “service” games that are continually updated. Brawlhalla has also continued to grow as an esports, as they have partnered with DreamHack for its upcoming third competitive season.
