Tetris going next-gen on PS4 and Xbox One from Ubisoft

Tetris is headed to next-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for its 30th birthday, The Tetris Company and Ubisoft announced today.

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

Developed in 1984 by Alexey Pajitnov, Tetris has been released for multiple platforms, including the original Game Boy, PC and the web. Touch-based versions of the game and variants like Tetris Blitz have appeared more recently on Android and iOS from Electronic Arts.

Last August, Ubisoft announced a deal with Hasbro to bring real-world board games like Battleship, Cranium, Monopoly, Risk and Trivial Pursuit to current and next-gen consoles. Also last year, The Tetris Company partnered with Hasbro to create Tetris Bop-It and Tetris Jenga in the real world.
