Ubisoft has announced the development of two new games exclusively for the Oculus platform, based on the Assassins Creed and Tom Clancys Splinter Cell franchises. Both games deliver the characteristic fantasy of each brand through a unique, impressive VR experience. Under the direction of Ubisoft's Red Storm Entertainment, the games are developed from the ground up specifically for the Oculus platform in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Düsseldorf and Ubisoft Mumbai. Each game will contain elements from the company's hugely popular franchises.
Ubisoft brings Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell to VR and continues to innovate in this growing sector. As a pioneer of the new technology, the company has been developing VR experiences since 2016 with titles such as Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within and Star Trek Bridge Crew, all of which are available on the Oculus platform.
"We're always looking for new ways to use technology to create unforgettable gaming experiences," said Elizabeth Loverso, vice president of product development for Red Storm Entertainment at Ubisoft. “With state-of-the-art hardware from Oculus, we can bring the worlds of Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell to life in new ways for fans. These games will take full advantage of Oculus' technology to deliver immersive, visceral experiences that gamers cannot find anywhere else. "
"We are very excited to be working with Ubisoft to bring two of their AAA franchises to VR," added Mike Verdu, vice president of content at Facebook Reality Labs. "You are an exceptional partner who consistently creates breakthrough content, and Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell on the Oculus platform will be no different. Players will experience dramatic, immersive experiences in worlds so far only in love 2D were available, and we're so excited to bring these VR games to franchise fans and new viewers alike. "
