Sarbakan is a veteran of game development, with over 700 titles under its belt, but you'd still be forgiven for having never heard of the Quebec-based developer. That won't last forever though, as the company has signed a deal with an unspecified publisher to bring a PlayStation Move title to retail next year.
There's no further details on what the game itself will involve, only that it should hit stores in 2011 as the first of Sarbakan's Move titles.
We're expecting to hear more on Sarbakan's Move plans in the coming months, so stay tuned.
