There was a roller coaster ride on social media and enthusiast forums today after Ubisoft posted a disposable comment on a forum blog entry This suggests that some of his Assassin’s Creed and PlayStation VR titles are beyond playable on the PlayStation 5 Backward Compatibility. “With a few exceptions, most of our previous game catalogs will be backwards compatible between the next and the current generation of consoles,” said a spokesman for the French company.
These games supposedly include: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Risk, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, Werewolves in Interior and space junkies. It’s a sizable collection of titles, especially considering Sony recently said so Only 10 PS4 games would not work on PS5.
We asked both Sony and Ubisoft representatives for comments, but we haven’t received a response from either company yet. However, a spokesman for the latter company made this available Gematsu with the following comment: “We have checked the Ubisoft Connect article and forum post on backward compatibility for the time being as there may be inaccuracies in the Ubisoft titles that are playable on PS5.”
In the PlayStation StorePublications such as Assassin’s Creed Syndicate have a disclaimer stating that the game may have bugs or unexpected behavior, and some features available on PS4 may not be present. However, there is no mention that it is not playable. Perhaps Ubisoft is simply dissatisfied with the performance of the above titles in terms of backward compatibility – or maybe this is just a big old mistake. We’ll update when we learn more.
