An Assassin’s Creed Nexus sequel is reportedly already in discussion


Ubisoft hasn’t even officially announced the title of the first game yet.

Ubisoft will invest all-in on Assassin’s Creed spin-offs and sequels. Whether it’s the release of Assassin’s Creed Infinity or the arrival of the long-awaited VR ports, fans of the series won’t be short of content anytime soon. Now a report claims that Ubisoft is already discussing a sequel to an Assassin’s Creed VR game that doesn’t even have an official title yet.

According to Insider Gaming sources, Ubisoft is already planning a sequel to the upcoming VR title codenamed Project Nexus. Ubisoft didn’t even officially confirm the working title “Nexus,” and it also wasn’t announced at the Ubisoft Forward event in September 2022, which revealed Jade and Mirage, along with other projects. But if these sources are accurate, then Ubisoft is clearly confident that this will be a hit with players.

The report also gives us some insight into the development of Nexus, which was intended to be exclusive to Meta Quest. According to sources, that deal has since fallen through. That leaves Ubisoft free to publish the game on any other VR platform, but Insider Gaming says that may not be possible given that the deal was terminated while the game was still in development. However, this means that post-boot ports are possible.

Nexus was also part of Ubisoft’s recently leaked 2023-24 game lineup, which includes titles like Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Skull and Bones, as well as several mobile titles. While we don’t know much about Nexus, a leak from April 2022 claimed that it will feature characters from previous AC titles. It is also said that there will be 16 missions with simple stealth gameplay and there will be teleportation as well.

The Assassin’s Creed series is incredibly valuable to Ubisoft, which is probably why it hasn’t been affected by the recently announced cancellations. As for the VR title, we got a glimpse of what it might look like when a fan recreates Assassin’s Creed 2 in VR. Its gameplay was as stomach-churning as expected, which hopefully won’t be the case with Nexus.
