Newsbrief: Gree has partnered with Take-Two subsidiary 2K to add two more notable Western franchises, Sid Meier's Civilization and Sid Meier's Pirates!, to its mobile social games network. Tokyo-based Gree has made plenty of efforts in recent months to strike deals with Western publishers to create games for its newly launched global network, signing agreements with Ubisoft (Assassin's Creed), Gameloft (Gangster), Mind Candy (Moshi Monsters), and CrowdStar (Top Girl). 2K's studio in China will create new smartphone games based on the Civilization and Pirates franchises. It will work with Gree to introduce social features to those titles. 2K also intends to work with Japanese developer Cyberagent to bring its NBA 2K franchise to Gree's platform in Japan.
