Assassin's Creed publisher Ubisoft and The Tetris Company today announced a partnership to create a new Tetris game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to be released digitally. The Tetris franchise marks its 30th anniversary in 2014, though the press release announcing the news made no mention of a release date for the new Ubisoft game.
Tetris is one of the most iconic and memorable franchises in gaming, having sold hundreds of millions of units worldwide across more than 50 different platforms since it began in 1984. It's not clear what form the new Tetris game from Ubisoft will take, but CEO Yves Guillemot commented that the titles will make use of "all the capabilities" of the Xbox One and PS4.
Last summer, Ubisoft signed a deal with Hasbro to develop and games based on board game franchises like Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Risk, Battleship, and Cranium.
