Newsbrief: French heavyweight Ubisoft has acquired the rights to Growtopia, a massively multiplayer social game that lets players build interactive game worlds while chatting and collaborating with others. 

Launched back in 2013, the game is a free-to-play offering with over 20 million registered users, and is currently available on mobile devices and PCs.
