Hasbro and Ubisoft will be teaming up to bring iconic games onto the current and the next-gen consoles some time in the future. Basically, Ubisoft will be the developer of Hasbro’s iconic games like Battleships, Risk, Cranium while having the Monopoly and Scrabble available in the US and Canada only.
“We look forward to collaborating with Ubisoft to offer consumers innovative new ways to experience their favorite gaming brands,” said Mark Blecher, Hasbro Senior Vice President, “Ubisoft’s leadership and expertise in the console gaming space will help support Hasbro’s strategy of bringing consumers engaging play experiences with our brands across multiple platforms.”
“Hasbro makes games that we all know and love, and we’re thrilled to be able to work with them to create video game experiences based on some of their most popular brands.” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft.
This is certainly quite interesting to see if Hasbro will create a new kind of digital boardgame or just have Ubisoft recreating the original popular games? At least I am looking for to the Risk game on the digital platform on the current gen consoles!
