Alain Martinez, Ubi CFO, revealed the publishing giant is a little miffed that Atari managed to whisk Cryptic away from them.
Still they've got "about three deals" going at the moment and it's likely that one or two will be sealed in the next few months. Team Cryptic are quite psyched to be working with Atari.
Speaking at the UBS Annual Global Media Conference, Martinez explained that they were a bit gutted because they had placed a bid for the studio themselves.
"We lost one deal which we were a bit mad" about losing out on said the CFO. "We lost Cryptic; it's a US company that was taken by Atari...we were a bit disappointed."
