The world-known gaming studio Ubisoft continues showing interest in Blockchain Gaming and this time, they have chosen a handful of companies to participate in their fifth Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab season.
This means that the participating projects will benefit from Ubisoft’s expertise through direct support and advice. Ubisoft’s initiative started in 2017 at Station F Paris and the past year it expanded to IMDA Pixel incubation space in Singapore. The current season’s theme is Social Entertainment which we reported back in January 2020 and it focuses on how blockchain can empower communities and facilitate social connections.
Among some non-blockchain companies, Ubisoft selected XAYA (Taurion & Soccer Manager Elite,) Sky Mavis (Axie Infinity) Sorare, Splinterlands, and Planetarium for the six-months mentorship program which will be mostly done remotely.
