Ubisoft announced two new VR games based on Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell, respectively, during today’s Facebook Connect event. Facebook Connect is the new name for the company’s annual Oculus VR showcase.
As previously rumored, Ubisoft confirmed that it is developing two new VR games based on its popular stealth franchises. Ubisoft Red Storm VP Elizabeth Loverso announced the news on Facebook’s virtual stage to introduce the “made-for-VR” titles.
Ubisoft talked about its early history with VR including titles like Star Trek Bridge Crew, and how Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell VR will be made from the ground up exclusively for Oculus VR platforms.
Ubisoft Red Storm, the company division focused on Tom Clancy games, will lead development for both Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed VR, with additional support from Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Dusseldorf, and Ubisoft Mumbai.
