According to recent reports, Assassin’s Creed VR and Splinter Cell VR will be officially unveiled later today. For the PlayStation VR owners among you, however, this whole thing might have a catch.
In the past few months, there has been a persistent rumor that Ubisoft could work on virtual reality games based on the two in-house brands of Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell.
After this topic has recently been a little quieter, the official announcements of Assassin’s Creed VR or Splinter Cell VR could now be imminent. As can be seen from a supposedly leaked Spanish press release, the unveiling of the two titles will take place in the course of today’s “Oculus Connect” on the stage.
It also states that Assassin’s Creed VR and Splinter Cell VR are the result of a collaboration between the Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Düsseldorf, and Ubisoft Mumbai studios and are tailored from the ground up to the technology of Oculus Rift.
So, of course, the question arises as to whether Oculus Rift was deliberately highlighted in the press release or whether PlayStation VR (for the time being) comes away empty-handed.
“We are always exploring new ways to leverage technology to create memorable gaming experiences. Oculus’ next-generation hardware will allow us to bring the worlds of Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell to life in a new way for fans. These games will take full advantage of Oculus technology to deliver immersive and emotional experiences that gamers don’t. they will be able to experience the same anywhere else,” said Elisabeth Loverso of Red Storm Entertainment as saying.
We may learn more later today. We will of course keep you up to date on further development.
