UK studio will be bought from Activision-Blizzard, but its current project has been canned

UK studio Swordfish has had its Vivendi-commissioned project 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand cancelled in the midst of the Activision-Blizzard takeover - but is still expected to be sold off, according to a report on Kotaku.

Little has been known about the fate of the Birmingham and Manchester-based studio, except that it was one of the assets acquired by Activision-Blizzard which it did not want to maintain overship of after merging with Vivendi.

Vivendi had charged the studio with producing the sequel to its best-selling 50 Cent title last year.
