The video game industry is constantly growing, but not all agents have fully embraced the world of Virtual reality. However, Ubisoft has taken a bold step by bringing its Assassin’s Creed saga to devices such as Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3, and Quest Pro with Assassin’s Creed Nexus, which has been well-received by users. Despite the positive feedback, it does not guarantee a satisfactory level of sales.
The launch and popularity of Apple Vision Pro glasses have prompted Ubisoft shareholders to inquire about the company’s plans in the VR sector during a meeting regarding the financial results of the last quarter. CEO Yves Guillemot disclosed the reality behind their Virtual Reality Assassin’s Creed, stating that they have been somewhat disappointed with the performance in VR. “It did well and continues to sell, but we thought it would sell more, so we are not going to increase our investment in VR right now, because it needs to take off,” the CEO revealed.
Although the sales of Assassin’s Creed in VR have not met Ubisoft’s expectations, it is considered a great experience within the franchise. In fact, it has been hailed as one of the best games in the series by 3DJuegos in their Assassin’s Creed Nexus analysis.
At this point, Ubisoft will not be investing heavily in VR until it sees significant growth, despite being impressed with what Apple has created. It is clear that they will keep VR in mind, but it will not be a main focus until it reaches a certain level of expansion.
