Ubisoft has opened up a second year of its Station F acceleration program with a focus on mobile AR and blockchain technology.
The program is looking for start-ups to take part in a six-month season at the Station F start-up campus in Paris. It will run from April 2018 to September 2018.
For mobile AR developers, Ubisoft is looking specifically for studios which have already made an AR demo. It will also consider the experience of the team, the originality of the concept, and the market potential of the product.
As for blockchain developers, the company is looking for a proven background working in blockchain technology. Developers will also need a clear vision of how blockchain technology will affect the future of entertainment.
The program is free to developers chosen, and Ubisoft won't take any equity in the technology developed. Applications close on December 31st – more information can be found on Ubisoft's website.
Blockchain technology is rapidly becoming the next big thing in mobile games and the wider tech world. To help developers understand it better, we're hosting an entire track on cryptocurrency and blockchain at our upcoming Pocket Gamer Connects London 2018.
