Exclusive – Ubisoft is Already Discussing a Sequel For Assassin’s Creed Nexus
It might seem somewhat bizarre, but Insider Gaming sources have revealed that Ubisoft is already internally discussing a sequel to its Assassin’s Creed VR project called Nexus.
Not much official information on Assassin’s Creed Nexus has been released by Ubisoft (apart from its initial announcement), but what we do know is that the game is slated to be an Oculus (META) exclusive. However, in recent weeks, Insider Gaming understands that the deal has apparently been terminated amid the ongoing budget cuts at Meta. It’s understood that Ubisoft can now publish the game across any VR platforms it desires, but it likely won’t due to the deal being cut well into the games development cycle.
What’s interesting about the ordeal though, is that Ubisoft is anticipating Nexus to do extremely well for a VR title, with internal discussions already beginning for Nexus 2. Understandably, it’s still early days, but this would imply that Ubisoft aims to release the sequel across multiple VR headsets in the future.
Assassin’s Creed Nexus is scheduled to release in September 2023 after Assassin’s Creed Mirage and will be revealed later this summer in June, sources suggest.
Nexus will be one of 11 titles released by Ubisoft in Fiscal Year 24, with the title being the only VR title by the publisher. Assassin’s Creed Nexus will allow you to play as past characters from past games in the series, with Ezio, Kassandra, Connor, and Haytham all being playable.
As for what Nexus 2 entails is anyone’s guess, but I’m sure we could expect more past characters making their debut in VR.
