It’s pretty safe to assume that everyone has heard of Tetris. Well, the world’s most well-known game will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and in honor of this milestone, Ubisoft has partnered with The Tetris Company to develop the Tetris franchise for digital release on the Xbox One and PS4. Since its launch in 1984, Tetris has graced over 50 platforms and sold hundreds of millions of units worldwide. Everything about this iconic game (from its simplistic look to the music that never seems to get out of our heads) will always have a place in gamers’ hearts.
“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, LLC.
“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.

Aw man bring it to last gen consoles. I really want some new tetris but I don't want to buy a whole new console for it!
This is really exciting news that UBI is doing the first Tetris game of the next gen! Wish i found out about it sooner. I'm sure you have some amazing talent dedicated to this project.
I know this project was just recently announced, however is there anywhere I can get more info around giving feedback for this current UBI Tetris port as well as feedback from all the other console Tetris games? I’d like to give write-ups for the other console version outlining the good and bad.
I’ve played 1000’s of hours playing every console Tetris, all the way up to the current gen systems and feel that given the opportunity I could provide some valuable user feedback based off my passion for the game and sheer amount of time spent playing Tetris on consoles.
I'm not quite sure who to contact but I hope this post makes it to the right place. :)
