Three mobile apps based on some of the most popular video game titles in the world will be developed by Netflix and Ubisoft beginning in 2023.
The three games will be available exclusively on mobile to Netflix members throughout the world with no commercials or in-app purchases and were first unveiled today at Ubisoft’s annual digital event Ubisoft Forward. They will expand on the Valiant Hearts, Mighty Quest, and Assassin’s Creed universes.
Ubisoft’s critically acclaimed Valiant Hearts: The Great War will have a sequel that continues the series’ legacy while telling an all-new story under the direction of the original creative team. In January of 2023, Netflix subscribers will be able to see it.
The sequel to the highly rated mobile game The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is coming to Netflix in 2023. This time around, the game will take cues from the roguelike genre to provide a fresh and highly replayable take on the series’ signature brand of hack-and-slash combat.
Fans of the Assassin’s Creed series will have multiple ways to dive into the series’ world on Netflix, as a live-action series and a brand-new mobile game are both in the works.
Netflix VP of Games Mike Verdu: “We’re excited to work with Ubisoft, whose track record building unforgettable environments for fans is unsurpassed.”
We’re working hard to establish a library of fantastic mobile games for our members all around the world, and this agreement will provide them early access to some of the most intriguing gaming franchises.
Ubisoft’s Chief Mobile Officer, Jean-Michel Detoc, is optimistic about the cooperation, saying, “As we continue to offer excellent experiences on all platforms, we’re happy to be teaming with such an inventive and creative partner as Netflix.”
More than 221 million paying customers in more than 190 countries have access to Netflix’s library of TV shows, movies, documentaries, and mobile games in dozens of languages and genres. These customers can watch as much as they want, whenever they want, on any screen connected to the Internet.
To that end, Ubisoft’s global teams develop a vast library of games under franchises like Assassin’s Creed, Brawlhalla, For Honor, Far Cry, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, Just Dance, Rabbids, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, The Crew, Tom Clancy’s The Division, and Watch Dogs, and connect them with other players in the Ubisoft Connect ecosystem.
