Ubisoft reveals official title for Assassin's Creed VR

Assassin's Creed Nexus will be getting a full reveal at the Ubisoft Forward showcase scheduled for June 12.

The Nexus in the Assassin's Creed franchise refers to an important place that Juno and the First Civilization could access.

It's official: Assassin's Creed is going virtual.

Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin's Creed Nexus, the name of the series' long-gestating VR title, will be designed exclusively for the Meta Quest VR headset. This announcement, which came at the Meta Quest Games Showcase, is the first Assassin's Creed game that's exclusive to the said platform. It adds another layer to the franchise's legacy while branching out to VR gaming.

Ubisoft first mentioned Assassin's Creed Nexus three years ago. Since then, the project has since been referred to by fans as Assassin's Creed VR.

Assassin's Creed Nexus is the sole survivor of the initial slate of VR titles planned by Ubisoft.

Interestingly enough, Ubisoft Red Storm, known for its work on Rainbow Six Siege and The Division, is taking the lead in Assassin's Creed Nexus.

So long as we can play as Ezio again in Assassin's Creed Nexus, we're good.

True to the company's "all-in" approach to Assassin's Creed, several other studios, including Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Dusseldorf, and Ubisoft Mumbai, are all providing Ubisoft Red Storm a ton of support for the game.

Speculations from earlier reports suggest that Assassin's Creed Nexus will feature sixteen individual missions, putting the players in the shoes of the series' most legendary assassins.

Assassin's Creed Nexus is part of Ubisoft's plans to bolster the series with more installments after a tough year. The biggest one, Assassin's Creed Mirage, is coming out in October. At least three other installments are currently in development along with Assassin's Creed Nexus, including a mobile game.

With a full reveal coming on June 12 at the Ubisoft Forward event, fans and VR enthusiasts alike are eager to discover how this beloved franchise will transition into the VR space.
