‘Good Games May Help VR Take Off’

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot didn’t deny reports of a deal with Facebook for new VR games in its investor call this week.

Earlier this month rumors surfaced stating that Ubisoft had signed exclusive Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed VR games to the Oculus platform. According to the reports, the move is part of Facebook’s push to get more content on its VR headsets. At the time, neither Facebook nor Ubisoft responded to the reports.

During a quarterly investor call yesterday, however, the rumor was directly mentioned to Guillemot. The CEO wasn’t asked to confirm its validity but instead asked about Ubisoft’s approach to VR. “On the VR side, we think seamless, frictionless, and good entry prices, and good games, could help this business to take off because it provides a good immersion for players,” Guillemot replied. “But we need to make sure those elements are there to make it actually grow,” he said.

It’s an interesting answer, given that this was an opportunity for Ubisoft to deny the rumor if it was fake. Still, don’t take it as confirmation of any sort. Ubisoft already has a handful of VR games to its name including Eagle Flight and Star Trek: Bridge Crew.

We don’t know if the supposed Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed VR games would appear on Rift, Quest or both. Guillemot’s comments around accessibility definitely seem in-line with Facebook’s push for more approachable VR headsets, though. Quest offers the most friction-free access to VR yet and the updated Rift S removes a lot of the hassle of the original.

Still, we’ll have to wait and see if there’s any validity to these reports.
