DJ Hero PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Here's a surprise: Ubisoft has acquired DJ Hero developer FreeStyleGames from Activision. The UK-based team – which most recently made Guitar Hero Live – will be renamed Ubisoft Leamington, and will be headed up by Ubisoft Reflections chief Richard Blenkinsop. Presumably the developer will be integrated into the Ubi Sweatshop™, perhaps responsible for creating rhythm minigames for any of its future releases.

It's rare that a subsidiary gets snapped up by a competing publisher, but we believe that it's UK law to at least attempt to sell a company before shutting it down, so presumably Activision wanted out. At least this way everyone gets to keep their job and continue working on games. "We're thrilled to have their expertise within the group, and the team at Reflections are looking forward to creating great things together," Blenkinsop said.
