Ubisoft Announces ‘Assassin’s Creed’ and ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell’ VR Games

Gaming giant reveals development is underway on two new unique immersive experiences, being built from the ground up exclusively for the Oculus platform.

Ubisoft has announced the development of two new games exclusively for the Oculus platform based on the Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell franchises; both games will deliver the signature fantasy of each brand through a unique immersive VR experience. Led by Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment, in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Düsseldorf and Ubisoft Mumbai, the games will be created from the ground up specifically for the Oculus platform. Each game will include elements from the company’s hugely popular franchises.

By bringing Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell to VR, Ubisoft is continuing to innovate in this growing sector. A pioneer of new technology, the company has been developing VR experiences since 2016, with titles like Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within, and Star Trek Bridge Crew, all of which are available on the Oculus platform.

“We are always exploring new ways we can leverage technology to help us create memorable gaming experiences,” explained Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment VP of product development, Elizabeth Loverso. “Oculus’s state-of-the-art hardware will enable us to bring the worlds of Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell to life for fans in a new way. These games will take full advantage of Oculus’s technology to deliver immersive, visceral experiences that players won’t be able to find anywhere else.”

"We’re thrilled to work with Ubisoft in bringing two of their AAA franchises to VR,” added Facebook Reality Labs VP of content, Mike Verdu. “They’re an exceptional partner consistently creating ground-breaking content, and Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell on the Oculus platform will be no different. Players will have dramatic, immersive experiences inside beloved worlds previously only available in 2D, and we’re so eager to bring these made-for-VR games to franchise fans and new audiences alike.”
