Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell might be getting exclusive VR games

The Facebook-owned virtual reality company has reportedly signed deals with Ubisoft to bring exclusive versions of Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed to Oculus.

According to the report on The Information, Facebook has signed a VR-exclusivity deal with Ubisoft to develop Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell for its Oculus headset.

The Information's report is behind a subscription, but The Game Awards' Geoff Keighley tweeted a screengrab of the opening of the article, which you can check out further down this article.

Mark Zuckerberg is said to be involved, but the push is being lead by Jason Rubin, the vice president of special gaming initiatives and co-founder of Naughty Dog.

The goal of the purchase is said to be to attract more users to VR.

Oculus hasn't announced any new partnerships for the Oculus Quest, but Facebook is apparently taking the lead of publishers like EA by trying to snatch up smaller developers and add their games and IP to the pile.

The promised VR boom from Facebook's $2 billion acquisition of Oculus back in 2014 may have failed to materialise as quickly as we'd all expected, but the continued popularity of the PlayStation VR, and Oculus's commitment to great exclusive content like Vader Immortal - A Star Wars VR Series offers hope that the best is still yet to come.
