Guitar Hero Live developer FreeStyleGames will be rebranded as Ubisoft Leamington after the dev team upped sticks to join the Assassin's Creed creator.
The news was quietly broken in a Ubisoft blog post, where it was revealed the FreeStyle team will now be working in close collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections and other international studios to develop triple-A titles.
Ubisoft also took the chance to name Reflections' new managing director, with Richard Blenkinsop taking on the mantle following the departure of Langourieux Pauline -- who stepped down to take on a more hands-on role.
Blenkinsop joined Ubisoft in 2012, and has since worked on a variety of projects including The Crew and The Division.
Before that, he held down a number of producer roles at Codemasters and Activision, lending his expertise to hit titles such as Call of Duty 3 and Rome: Total War.
