Montreal was a brand new studio with no IP attached to it. SP was auctioned off separately.
So no, they got no IP in that purchase and it's not why they bought it. They bought it because it's right next to them and a fully stocked, fully staffed 500 person studio. Will it stay 500 people? Who knows?
