Splinter Cell VR, Assassin's Creed VR Could be Coming to Oculus Soon

Facebook to bring Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell to Oculus Rift - report

Indie and indie-leaning games have dominated VR thus far; Facebook's apparent effort to acquire and secure exclusivity deals appears to be an attempt to ramp up its own VR growth with well known properties.

Obviously, since these are rumors, we invite you to take the information provided with due caution and not take it for granted.

A new report states Facebook and Ubisoft have signed a deal to bring Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell to Oculus. It seems Facebook is keen on buying a game studio to help speed things along, and also wants to work with some third-party studios and publishers to bring their games to the Oculus platform. Sources inside the company recently talked to The Information about the firm's future plans for Oculus VR.

KitGuru Says: High quality VR games are starting to become more common each year. This is lower than the 33% reported previous year.

With Facebook under a lot of scrutiny worldwide on how it treats user data, Oculus is one of Facebook's many ventures to expand beyond the realms of social media. Facebook hopes that a deal like this will boost the adoption of VR headsets and more specifically, boost Oculus's standing in the market.

This year Facebook released the Oculus Quest, a $399 fully wireless VR headset that can run without needing to be hooked up to a PC. And Sony's ties to the gaming industry have earned it timed or permanent PlayStation VR exclusives on some big franchise games like Skyrim VR as well as titles from prominent developers like From Software, the creator of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. So, acquiring studios and inking exclusives are two sure ways to ensure content will come to the Oculus, and make the VR headset more appealing to potential customers.
