Former Microsoft casual boss to head up new Ubisoft department

Ubisoft is to open a new department focused on digital publishing, appointing former Microsoft casual gaming boss Chris Early.

The division will concentrate its efforts on a wide range of platforms, including iPhone, console, PC and web.

“Our focus on digital publishing will be about operating games as an online service,” said Early, now vice president of digital publishing, in an interview with VentureBeat.
