Assassin’s Creed VR is not in development
Ubisoft could be working on a VR game of Assassin’s Creed. This is what emerged from the career portfolio of Matt Stenquist, software engineer, developer and designer specialized in the interface and usability.
As reported by AllGamesDelta, the online portfolio of the artist shows some works related to “Assassin’s Creed VR Game”, made on behalf of Ubisoft Paris. Matt has been involved in designing the interface and menus for this mysterious title apparently made with the Unreal Engine 4 and intended for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Anything that was reported above has not been confirmed and Ubisoft has not announced anything about Assassin’s Creed VR, until now.
Recently, Tim van Kan (in charge of VR projects of Ubisoft) has informed us with a brief note that the leaked material is actually part of a school and educational project realized by students of NHTV in collaboration with Ubisoft Paris. This is not a commercial project or a product intended to see the light of the spotlight, but a simple exercise in style.
Additionally, Michel Sainisch, who works with the NHTV University of Breda, has contacted to clarify that this is a study project realized in collaboration with Ubisoft. According to Sainisch: “There are no plans for a commercial version.”
