9 NOVEMBER, SYDNEY - Today, Immutable, the leading web3 gaming platform announced a new partnership with Ubisoft, a leading video game creator and publisher, to create a new gaming experience that will further unlock the potential of web3. With this partnership, Immutable continues in its ambition to bring digital ownership to players, while Ubisoft pursues its exploration of decentralization through its Strategic Innovation Lab.
The first step of this collaboration will define how both companies will combine their expertise - Ubisoft will leverage its robust experience developing top-notch, quality games with Immutable’s vast ecosystem, technology and expertise in building the leading web3 gaming platform.
Nicolas Pouard, Vice-President of Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab and Head of its Blockchain Initiative said: “As the platform of choice for many leaders within the Web3 community, Immutable offers both cutting-edge technology and a unique expertise in seamlessly integrating decentralized technologies into games. We’re excited to partner with them and look forward to bringing that level of fluidness within a full-fledged game, so players only have to focus on the fun of the experience.”
The partnership signifies another milestone for Immutable following the successful TestNet launch of their zk roll-up gaming solution Immutable zkEVM, and successful game demos for their flagship titles, Guild of Guardians, Metalcore, Shardbound and Infinite Victory. James Ferguson, Immutable CEO and Co-Founder said: “Partnering with Ubisoft is a defining landmark for Immutable. We couldn’t be more excited to explore with Ubisoft the benefits of web3 and digital ownership for players. We plan to bring the full weight of our ecosystem to bear to ensure the partnership’s success. We are confident that we will bring to life a fresh new experience that players will love.”
