The Tetris franchise, which turns thirty this year, is getting its first next gen installment as today Ubisoft and The Tetris Company (my favorite name for a company) announced that they would be partnering to bring the iconic franchise to both the PS4 and Xbox One. Specific details about the game were not given, simply that it exists. Oddly enough, the existence of a new Tetris game is more than enough to get me excited.
“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.”
It will be very interesting to see what they do with a new Tetris. I for one have not played Tetris in years so I will most definitely be getting my hands on this product, even if it is just a prettier version of the game we have loved for thirty years.
