On Monday, the well-known video streaming service Netflix and Ubisoft revealed their collaboration to produce three mobile games for Netflix based on popular gaming brands beginning in 2023.
The three games will build on the Valiant Hearts, Mighty Quest, and Assassin’s Creed universes. They will only be accessible on mobile devices and will be free of commercials and in-app purchases for all Netflix subscribers worldwide.
According to Netflix Vice President of Games Mike Verdu, “We are excited to partner with Ubisoft, whose track record building unforgettable environments for fans is unsurpassed.”
As we continue to develop a library of fantastic mobile games for our members throughout the world, this agreement will provide our members unique access to some of the most intriguing game franchises, said Verdu.
The original core team is in charge of the next Valiant Hearts game, a follow-up to Ubisoft’s multi-award-winning Valiant Hearts: The Great War, which will have the same DNA while having a fresh plot. In January 2023, it will be accessible to Netflix subscribers.
The Mighty Quest will launch on Netflix in 2023 with a new game following the widely renowned The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot mobile game. This time, the game will take cues from the rogue-like subgenre to create a unique and incredibly replayable experience that honours the series’ original hack-and-slash action.
In addition to the previously announced live-action series, a brand-new mobile game is being created especially for Netflix, allowing Assassin’s Creed fans to fully immerse themselves in the Assassin’s Creed universe.
“We are happy to be cooperating with such an inventive and creative partner as Netflix as we continue to offer fantastic experiences on all platforms,” said Jean-Michel Detoc, Chief Mobile Officer, Ubisoft.
