Ubisoft recently announced that it will join the Ultra EOSIO blockchains as its first Corporate BP. The UOS will be used by Ubisoft to facilitate in-game asset creation, ownership transfers between players, and payment channels.
"Ubisoft's rich portfolio of world-renowned brands, including Assassin's Creed, Just Dance and Far Cry, is a testament to their dedication to creating quality content for all, and their years long dedication to exploring blockchain technology ensures they have the knowledge and skills to be excellent block producers." - Nicolas Gilot, founder and co-CEO of Ultra
The date for the launch of the Ultra's blockchain has yet to be announced. In any case besides Ubisoft there are other important Block Producers, such as Bitfinex, EOS NY and EOS Rio. Among these, Ubisoft is an important element, given their experience in videogames space and their recent interest in public blockchains. Ubisoft will start contributing to the testnet before the end of the year and, if successful, will be part of the launch team for the Mainnet.
We are definitely excited to see what other announcements will be revealed, surely Ultra is proving to be an interesting surprise.
