Electronic Arts and Ubisoft announce Origin and Uplay deal

Electronic Arts and Ubisoft have announced a deal which will see Ubisoft games become available on EA’s digital service Origin.

The digital PC versions of Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 3 will be made available to PC gamers on EA’s Origin service, with North American users already having access to the games while users in Europe and Asia will have to wait until tomorrow, 22nd February.

The deal between the two companies also works the other way around, as Electronic Arts is now bringing its titles to Ubisoft’s digital service Uplay. Selected EA games such as Dead Space 3 and Mass Effect 3 have already been made available worldwide on the Uplay shop.

“The heart of any valuable gaming service is delivering all the great content that players want,”  said Michael Blank, Vice President of Production for Origin at EA, in a press release, “and the addition of Ubisoft’s top PC titles on Origin, as well as EA’s titles to Uplay, is a big win for all of our players.”

Chris Early, Vice President of Digital Publishing at Ubisoft, added, “Making our biggest franchises like Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry available on Origin is a great way of exposing even more PC gamers to these great titles and giving them another choice in where and how they buy their games.”
