Ubisoft will publish Italian publisher Black Bean's games in the UK, including the officially licensed SBK and WRC titles, MCV has revealed.

As well as the racing titles, the deal means Ubisoft will publish Black Bean's other titles, including those using the National Geographic license and dance game Let's Dance with Mel B.

SBK 2011 will hit stores on May 13 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

While WRC was a solid title, earning a 6/10 on its release last year, it suffered from dated visuals and sloppy presentation. It's unclear if the deal with Ubisoft will see more money pumped into the franchises.
