No, Ubisoft is not Working on Assassin’s Creed VR

Assassin’s Creed VR is something we all want to see ever since the dawn of PlayStation VR and other VR devices. However, Ubisoft has not only kept silent on anything VR related for Assassin’s Creed but we haven’t even heard of any game modes as well.

In the past few hours, something interesting came up, mention of something called “Assassin’s Creed VR.” Matt Stenquist, a UI/UX artist working with Ubisoft’s Paris studio, posted a few images showing UI for a VR Assassin’s Creed project.

The internet quickly jumped to the conclusion that Assassin’s Creed VR is in development at Ubisoft. While that is exciting to hear, unfortunately, this is not the case. Even if Ubisoft is working on Assassin’s Creed VR, this particular UI is not related to the project. Reporters failed to see the mention of NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences in the image above.

Ubisoft is actually working with NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences students on a project called Assassin’s Creed: Da Vinci’s Workshop. It is Ubisoft’s in-house experimentation with VR and the company has no plans to release a commercial version of it.

That is a little disappointing but we have to see the silver lining here. Ubisoft is testing VR in Assassin’s Creed and if the results are positive, we may actually see VR implemented in Assassin’s Creed games. The next Assassin’s Creed will presumably release later this year and at least a VR mode shouldn’t be ruled out.

If such a game is to be ever released, it would arrive on PlayStation VR and possibly on HTC VIVE .
