September 26, 2018 | By Bryant Francis




Newsbrief: French publisher Bigben has bought a full controlling stake in French game developer Eko Software for a total of €8.5 million ($9.98 million).

In a press release, Bigben (known for publishing the World Rally Car Championship series), states that the goal of the acquisition is to become one of the world leaders in "double-A" video game publishing. Eko Software has spent the last few years developing sports titles in the Rugby and Handball series, and is working on Warhammer: Chaosbane at this moment. 

For those who may not have heard of Bigben before, the company also acquired Styx developer Cyanide for $24 million back in May.
