Immutable X (IMX)

Founded in 2018 by James Ferguson, Robbie Ferguson, and Alex Connolly, Immutable is headquartered in Sydney with a team of over 260 individuals. Notable investors include Bitkraft Ventures, King River Capital, AirTree, Temasek, Coinbase, and more.

Immutable X pioneered one of the world’s first blockbuster NFT trading-card game Gods Unchained and is currently building the highly anticipated mobile RPG Guild of Guardians.

“Partnering with Ubisoft is a defining landmark for Immutable. We couldn’t be more excited to explore with Ubisoft the benefits of web3 and digital ownership for players. We plan to bring the full weight of our ecosystem to bear to ensure the partnership’s success. We are confident that we will bring to life a fresh new experience that players will love.”

James Ferguson, Immutable CEO and Co-Founder.

Champions Tactics

Ubisoft, though known for innovation, has faced challenges in the word of web3 gaming. A previous attempt to introduce blockchain-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to the Ghost Recon game garnered criticism, leading Ubisoft to reconsider. Despite setbacks, the company remains committed to web3 gaming experimentation most notably with their latest game, 'Champions Tactics™ Grimoria Chronicles'. The game, currently under development with a native web3 direction, is a Player versus Player (PVP) Tactical RPG.
