Giant publisher Ubisoft has left its exclusive UK distribution deal with Trilogy Logistics, MCV can reveal – and is already delivering stock to retail through an open arrangement.
Numerous trade sources have informed us that Ubisoft has struck an eleventh hour deal with Essex firm Gem to handle Christmas stock – but that the publisher is also maintaining a working relationship with Trilogy and other disties. It is unclear whether the firm is interested in signing a new exclusive deal in the territory.
Ubisoft first signed with Trilogy in June, 2007, when
it left its long-standing exclusive contract with the now-defunct Pinnacle.
Ubisoft was not available for comment when contacted by MCV.
