It’s always big news when Ubisoft announces a new Assassin’s Creed game, even though that’s more or less an annual tradition at this point. It’s even bigger news when Ubisoft announces a new Splinter Cell game, a franchise that has been largely forgotten about for a long time now.
Yet, unfortunately, despite new installments in both of those series being unveiled today, it’s not going to drum up a whole lot of excitement.
As part of the Facebook Connect event that kicked off today, Ubisoft revealed new Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed games for Oculus VR. They’re both being primarily developed by the North Carolina-based Ubisoft Red Storm team. No gameplay details — protagonists, plot, setting, etc. — were mentioned regarding either game.
