In the news today:

Ubisoft wants to buy Sunflowers!
Sunflowers agrees this is a good idea. Anno 1701 is Germany´s most successful strategy franchise with more then 5M units sold. Also part of the deal is Sunflowers´ 30% stake in Anno 1701 developer Related Designs.
After the acquisition Ubi will have a dominant position on the German strategy market because they also own the other strong brand, The Settlers, though the Blue Byte deal a couple of years ago.

Ubi´s investment is a sign that the big publishers perceive a clear upward trend in the quality delivered by German developers.
