Today, Ubisoft and The Tetris Company announced a partnership to develop the iconic Tetris franchise for digital channels on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Sony PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system. The Tetris franchise celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2014 and has sold hundreds of millions of units worldwide across more than 50 different platforms since its launch in 1984. Tetris-branded products are available in more than 50 languages and in 185 countries around the world. Ubisoft draws from experience in creating memorable experiences for casual gamers with licenses such as The Smurfs and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, as well as the recent announcement of a partnership with Hasbro.


"We welcome Ubisoft to the Tetris family. I am 100% sure they will develop one of the best versions of the Tetris game ever," said Henk B. Rogers, managing director of The Tetris Company, LLC.


"We're very excited to start working with this world-renowned brand, and can't wait to combine Ubisoft's expertise and all the capacities of next-gen consoles to create an exciting new Tetris experience for fans," added Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft co-founder and CEO.

Does it mean there will be less Tetris games pubished by EA? Less games by the worst publisher, more games from the second worst publisher. That's at least a progress - even though small. I don't understand that one statement ('all-in-one games'). Will Tetris be part of a game compilation - and not a stand-alone game? Thread: http://harddrop.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=5643

I won't be able to try it, but I'd like to see what happens though - any new Tetris game is potentially interesting. Let's hope that there will be a competitive side to this game.
