In January 2012, Namco Bandai will completely absorb the Tales Studio which develops the Tales RPG series on behalf of the publisher. The studio will dissolve officially January 1st.
The studio was known as Wolf Team before Namco took a majority stake in 2003. As of April this year it was learned that 109 devs work at the studio, continuing the RPG series.
It's unclear if the newly absorbed team will be staying with the Tales IP, or moving on. Namco reported strong sales performances recently, doubling last month's profit forecast to ¥194 billion.
