Netflix and Ubisoft Sept. 10 announced plans to bring three mobile games from popular game franchises to Netflix, starting in 2023.
First announced at Ubisoft’s annual digital event Ubisoft Forward, the three games will expand on the “Valiant Hearts,” “Mighty Quest” and “Assassin’s Creed” universes and will be available exclusively on mobile to Netflix members around the world with no ads or in-app purchases.
A new “Valiant Hearts” game, sequel to Ubisoft’s game Valiant Hearts: The Great War, is directed by the original core team and “will retain the same DNA while featuring a new story,” according to a Netflix press release. It will be available to Netflix members in January 2023. After The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot mobile game, “The Mighty Quest” will come to Netflix in 2023 with a new game. “This time, the game will draw inspiration from the roguelike genre to deliver an experience that celebrates the series’ premiere hack-and-slash combat in a fresh and highly replayable format,” according to the press release.
“Assassin’s Creed” fans will be able to immerse themselves in the universe on Netflix in more than one way: in addition to the previously announced live-action series, an all-new mobile game is being developed exclusively for Netflix.
“We’re thrilled to work with Ubisoft, whose track record creating memorable worlds for fans is unmatched,” Mike Verdu, VP of games for Netflix, said in a statement. “This partnership will provide our members with exclusive access to some of the most exciting game franchises as we continue to build a catalog of great mobile games for our members around the world.”
“As we continue to create great experiences on all platforms, we’re glad to be partnering with such an innovative and creative partner as Netflix,” Jean-Michel Detoc, chief mobile officer for Ubisoft, said in a statement. “I believe that this partnership will be a great opportunity for Netflix members to further explore our worlds and universes on mobile.”
