The lights are on
On the 30th anniversary of the legendary puzzle series' first release, Ubisoft has worked out a deal with The Tetris Company to release a game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 via digital download. The as-yet-untitled new entry will release sometime in 2014. No further details are available at this point.

Our Take:Tetris is a timeless series that will never die. It's one of those games that is guaranteed to make it to every platform. The only question was who would bring it to the new generation of consoles. The Tetris Company has had previous licensing deals with companies like Electronic Arts and Nintendo with varying results. It'll be interesting to see if Ubisoft can bring something unique to the table.
