Ubi Soft today announced that they've signed an exclusive deal with Anco Software, which will see them publishing Sven Goran Eriksson games.

Saul Leese, Marketing Manger at Anco told us "It just keeps getting better and better, first Alex Ferguson and now Sven Goran Eriksson. International football management is extremely high profile and England love Sven. We will release 2 games that truly capture the flavour of the world cup". And if previous Ubi Soft signings are anything to go by, such as when they signed Steven Gerrard to their GBA title - the same day as England thrashed Germany - then this world cup should be a good one for England.

The deal will see Ubi Soft release Sven Goran Eriksson's World Cup Manager and Sven Goran Eriksson's World Cup Challenge, and will feature brand new gameplay engines and new stadiums, enhanced AI and player models.

Both titles are due for release in March, for the PC.
