Facebook has announced that they will be working with the game publisher on what it calls its video game streaming initiative, which will help bring Ubisoft's titles to their platform.

Since launching in select US states back in October, the San Francisco-based social media juggernaut has added 25 titles to its service. These include Roller Coaster Tycoon Touch, Dragon Mania Legends and State of Survival.


Facebook says they plan to add "hundreds" more titles in the years ahead. And that they are currently planning to roll out the service in Canada and Mexico, and then expand to Western and Central Europe later in 2022 as part of its effort to bolster Facebook's gaming presence against other video game services.


Facebook has built it’s gaming platform for their social network and accompanying Android app, so players pay within the already install app instead of downloading a standalone app. Facebook revealed that more than 1.5 million people play cloud-streamed games provided by their service every month.


Facebook believes that teaming up with Ubisoft, which has been very open to cloud gaming, will help to make its cloud-gaming platform more appealing and likely bring in new players. Facebook is still working to get its cloud gaming platform onto iOS. Though its gaming app is available for iPhones and iPads, it doesn't include playable games due to Apple's third-party software restrictions.
