Facebook may be looking for major VR exclusives

Reports suggest that both Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed Oculus VR games are in development, and that they will be exclusive to the device.

Particulars on which games Facebook plans to accumulate are vague. Whether it's video games, movies, or television shows, he's a combination of jock and nerd and the two parts of the whole have figured out how to live peaceably.

Ubisoft isn't the only big-name publisher that's making new partnerships with Oculus and Facebook either.

He also suggested to viewers that "maybe we are importing people from places who are simply antithetical to ours". Omar has not held back when talking about the aspects of the country she sees as needing improvement.

Facebook is reportedly pursuing acquisitions and exclusivity deals in an effort to supply its VR hardware with big name, triple-A productions. While a deal with Ubisoft for these VR games would be in-line with its previous movements, Oculus has never outright bought a VR studio.

Splinter Cell M.I.A. There hasn't been a mainline Splinter Cell game since 2013's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. If done well, an Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell VR game could end up being awesome, but we will have to wait and see how things turn out as these are just rumours for the time being. This is lower than the 33% reported past year. Unlike numerous previous high-profile VR platforms from Facebook and others, Quest offers an untethered VR system that does not require an inserted mobile or a muscular tethered PC to run. Facebook hopes that a deal like this will boost the adoption of VR headsets and more specifically, boost Oculus's standing in the market. Jason Rubin, who's the vice president of special gaming initiatives (and former head of content at Oculus and co-founder of Naughty Dog), is said to be leading the charge.

Despite Facebook's ambitions for gaming, all of it revolves around the Oculus VR platform instead of more traditional video game consoles like the PlayStation or Xbox. Sales for the Oculus Quest have reportedly exceeded Facebook's internal sales projections, and VR and AR headset sales in 2019 are already up 54.1% from 2018. IGN noted that not a lot of game developers are interested in developing VR games; in fact, according to a Game Developers Conference survey, only 27% of game devs want to create VR games.
