Assassin’s Creed Nexus Announced for VR, Launches 2023

Here at Insider Gaming, we were talking about Assassin’s Creed Nexus as far back as the middle of 2022, and it’s here – it has finally been announced. It was back in 2020 that Ubisoft floated the idea of an Assassin’s Creed VR experience, but it’s only now that the plans are being realised – and you heard about it first with Insider Gaming.

On Twitter, the Meta Quest and Assassin’s Creed profiles highlighted the announcement but offered very little in the way of ‘extra’ information, other than the fact that it’ll be released later this year. It’ll be revealed in full during the Ubisoft Forward event that’s taking place on June 12th, one day after the Xbox Games Showcase and the Starfield Direct event.

Become an Assassin

Meta Quest’s social media team stated that players will be able to become assassins in Assassin’s Creed Nexus, ‘an all-new game built exclusively for VR’. In the ten-second long teaser that promises a full reveal in a little under two weeks, we see the classic Assassin’s Creed logo laid over a globe that’s encircled by some kind of broken-up glyph-like pattern.

It isn’t much to go on.

In one of our original reports, we highlighted that Nexus will apparently feature sixteen individual missions that’ll see players step into the first-person perspective of some of the series’ most legendary assassins, from Ezio Auditore to Connor Kenway and Kassandra.

Bizarrely, it was suggested earlier this year that Ubisoft was already planning a sequel to the Nexus project.

We’ll know much more about Nexus when the game is revealed in full on June 12th during this year’s Ubisoft Forward showcase.
