Ubisoft Partners With SpectreVision, New VR Horror Game Could Be in Development
PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift will release in the near future and currently some of the top game developers are preparing VR content, including Sony, Crytek, and Ubisoft.
Major bets are being placed on the VR market by industry giants and it is just announced that Ubisoft is going into partnership with SpectreVision for VR content. The company announced that Eagle Vision, a recently announced VR game from Ubisoft, was just the beginning.
With the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and other virtual reality headsets poised to roll out in the near future, Ubisoft has some big plans for the VR space – the Jack the Ripper trailer and previously announced Eagle Flight were just the beginning. Ubisoft is now partnering with SpectreVision, the production company behind such films as A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, to create original virtual reality content.
SpectreVision will work with Ubisoft’s FunHouse Studio in Montreal. It was founded by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, and it focuses mainly on horror movies. This indicates that we can expect a VR horror game from Ubisoft Montreal in the future.
According to Patrick Plourde, Vice President of Ubisoft Montreal:
Their expertise in the horror film genre is exciting for us. We’re looking forward to a collaboration that will ultimately offer fans an unforgettable virtual reality experience.
From the looks of it, plenty of developers are on-board with the idea of making VR the future of video games. This is great news for both PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift, and should confidence to potential buyers.
