A new report states Facebook and Ubisoft have signed a deal to bring Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell to Oculus.

According to the report on The Information, Facebook has signed a VR-exclusivity deal with Ubisoft to develop Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell for its Oculus headset.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is said to have been involved with the deal.

The report also states Facebook is looking to acquire game studios to beef up game development for the headset.

When reached for comment, a Facebook spokesperson told GI.biz it couldn’t comment on “specific partnerships,” but it “will continue to focus on expanding” its Oculus library and “reaching broader gaming audiences for years to come.”

File this away as a rumor then for the time being.

Speaking of which, a new Splinter Cell game being in the works has been rumored for what seems like ages now, but Ubisoft has yet to confirm or deny the rumors.
