Hasbro and Electronic Arts (EA) have signed a deal to launch Monopoly and Scrabble in digital formats. The games will be available across mobile, online, handheld, PC and consoles.

The deal will give EA exclusive worldwide rights to create digital versions of a number of Hasbro’s intellectual properties. Alongside the classic board games, EA will also be able to develop games based on Hasbro toy brands such as Tonka and Nerf.

Hasbro chief operating officer Brian Goldner says: “Aligning ourselves with EA will result in the broadening the reach of your brands through the ‘re-imagining’ of these entertainment icons in all key digital categories.”

The agreement initially runs until the end of 2013. The first games are scheduled to launch in 2008.
