A Ubisoft is not at all happy with the commercial performance of Assassin's Creed Nexus VR. The result was so below expectations that the company is recalculating the route. Now she decided invest little in technology until it is much more established in the market.
The information emerged during a question and answer session at Ubisoft's meeting with its investors. On the occasion, a participant commented on the emergence of new VR formats, such as Meta Quest 3 and the Apple Vision Pro. And if the producer was willing to develop games for these new platforms.
It was then that Yves Guillemot, CEO from Ubisoft, responded to the comment.
We're somewhat disappointed with what we've achieved so far in VR with Assassin's Creed. It was just ok (in sales) and even continues to sell, but we thought it would sell a lot more. So we're not going to increase our investments in VR right now, because (the technology) needs to take off. (…) We will continue to pay attention to business in VR, (…) but we will not invest that much anymore until it grows.
Assassin's Creed Nexus VR continues outside of PSVR2
So far, Assassin's Creed Nexus VR is only available for the Quest, Meta's VR headset. The game does not have a version planned for PS VR2. With Guillemot's comment, it is possible that this will never happen.
