Havas takes on U’s ‘Dragon’

Cyberbiz Brief

Havas Interactive, a division of Vivendi, is taking the production reins of Universal Interactive Studios’ popular vidgame franchise “Spyro the Dragon.” Sony formerly produced the game, which has sold 5 million units, and is working on the third installment, to be released in November. The new three-year deal represents the first synergistic move between Vivendi and Seagram, although negotiations to take over the project began before the onset of merger talks between the two congloms, a spokesman said. Havas is already beginning work on the fourth installment of “Spyro” to be released in 2002 for the PlayStation, Nintendo and Microsoft X-Box platforms.
