Ubisoft partners with Tencent to release games in China

In news that will come as little surprise, French publishing outfit Ubisoft is partnering up with Chinese tech and game giant Tencent to release its games in China.

The latter will be operating, publishing and pushing a number of Ubi's 'most successful titles' in the region and will speed up its presence in the region.

No games are named in the announcement, but it's fair to assume that we'll see the likes of Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs and Just Dance hitting China.
