FreeStyleGames is currently working on "localized downloadable content" for the Activision-owned Guitar Hero franchise, along with a new music-based game. According to Activision, the acquisition represents the latest step in "its global leadership position in the music-based genre." Financial details were not specified.
Over on its official site, FreeStyleGames affirmed that it will "retain creative control, continue to run the studio and have the opportunity to continue to achieve our own ambitious targets."
"We can begin to leverage Activision's experience, infrastructure and support to deliver on the games we have in development," the developer added.
