Ubisoft buys Michael Jackson developer

Publisher acquires Dance on Broadway maker Longtail Quebec

Ubisoft has purchased Longtail Studios Quebec, the developer behind Dance on Broadway and a contributor to Michael Jackson: The Experience.

Ubi will close the existing studio and integrate nearly all of the staff into its own studio in the province, Gamasutra reports.


"The Longtail team has already completed several important projects for Ubisoft," said the company in a statement.

"This initiative will allow Ubisoft Quebec to acquire additional expertise, as well as talented and experienced developers who participated in the development of key Kinect projects including Michael Jackson: The Experience."

Ubisoft's said this week that a free glove is to be bundled with Michael Jackson: The Experience on Wii.
