Ubisoft has partnered with The Tetris Company to develop a new entry in the puzzle series for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the company announced.

The Tetris franchise celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Since its launch in 1984, the game has appeared on over 50 different platforms, selling hundreds of millions of units worldwide.

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

“We’re very excited to start working with this world-renowned brand, and can’t wait to combine Ubisoft’s expertise and all the capacities of next-gen consoles to create an exciting new Tetris experience for fans,” added Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft co-founder and CEO.

Further details on Ubisoft’s new Tetris game were not announced.

    I would prefer a 1080p@60fps Pong with 16xAA and Tessellation. This would really show the real beneftis of the next gen.

    To hell with this game if the put load screens in it.

    I want Tetris on PS Vita, not PS4.

    Oh well, hopefully there’s no loading. I mean, it’s Tetris… it shouldn’t have loading at all in 2014.

      All my sentiments, thoroughly stated in one comment. However, I want to amend a little something. I wouldn’t mind a small bit of loading for multiplayer modes, wouldn’t mind seeing some Asynchronous play too. (Kind of like a ghost challenge maybe or something a bit closer to real time but not entirely, like causing havoc for friends for them to see later when they play)

    The Tetris game that EA made for the PS3 was actually pretty well done. So I’m glad to hear someone’s bringing it to PS4.

    Tetris is a great game, if you want to get good at it, there’s a crazy amount of skill required.

    Nothing like 1v1 split-screen Tetris.

    I still have Tetris on my PS3 (the one published by EA in 2011), and that one takes a good 40 seconds to go through all the warnings, logos, and all that before allowing access to the main menu. It also takes another 10 seconds of loading before the game starts. So yeah, I don’t really care how they do it but this game should have an option to skip straight to the main menu, and it better not have any load time at all if they want to convince me of purchasing it. Also, it better have stereoscopic 3D feature like the one published by EA.
