Nearly three years ago, then-Oculus & Ubisoft promised Assassin’s Creed & Splinter Cell titles would be in development for virtual reality. While ambitious, it was some time before the developer announced it would be pulling the plug on the operation. Saddened by the news, many assumed the ambition would be forever lost in time since the statement made in July 2022.
However, that apparently was not the case – at least not entirely. Yes, Splinter Cell would not be facing any love on the Meta Quest. However, Assassin’s Creed remained in development according to Insider Gaming. The report told ‘Codename Nexus’ would also anticipate a sequel already. And at the Meta Quest Showcase, Ubisoft properly announced Assassin’s Creed Nexus with more information come the Ubisoft Forward press conference.
During the showcase on Monday, Ubisoft issued a complete gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR and shared a holiday release is planned for the new title. You can watch the trailer in the video below:
“Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, which made its debut during Ubisoft Forward 2023, will let players embody Assassin’s Creed II’s Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Assassin’s Creed III’s Connor, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Kassandra across an original, centuries-spanning adventure created for virtual reality,” the overview for the game reads.
“Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR aims to immerse players in a true Assassin’s Creed experience where they become the Assassin, including climbing, open environments, parkour, and the Leap of Faith.” In the blog post, Ubisoft interviews the developers on the new game which the talent shares exciting details on the upcoming release.
