Upgrade: Ubisoft has withdrawn its statement due to possible errors in the information.
Ubisoft has revealed a list of games that will not have support for the PS5 through backward compatibility.
Although Sony had already confirmed that 99% of PS4 games could be enjoyed on the new console, even announcing the only 10 games that were out of compatibility, now the French company surprises with a list of 9 titles, mostly belonging to the saga Assassin’s Creed
So these are the Ubisoft games that you won’t be able to play on the PS5: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Russia, Risk, Star Trek Bridge Crew, Werewolves Within Y Space Junkies. Except perhaps Assassin’s Creed SyndicateFortunately, the rest of the titles are not among the most popular of the French publisher.
Despite the above, Ubisoft ensures that the PlayStation 5 will have no trouble running the rest of your PS4 library, including proposals such as Watch Dogs: Legion, which we already analyze here in Hipertextual
It is strange, of course, that this news arrives three weeks after Sony’s announcement. Those from Japan confirmed the unsupported titles from October 9: DWVR, Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One, TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, Just Deal With It!, Shadow Complex Remastered, Robinson: The Journey, We Sing, Hitman Go: Definitive Edition, Shadwen Y Joe’s Diner. It is worth mentioning that DWVR will receive a patch for PS5 soon.
Sony clarified that some PS4 games could “exhibit bugs or unexpected behaviors when played on PS5 consoles.” In consecuense, the aforementioned Ubisoft titles may have various performance issues on the PlayStation 5, which is why Ubisoft preferred to remove them from the support list. Remember that in Hipertextual we already did the unboxing on PS5 — and Xbox Series X — and we’ll be delving into both hardware soon.
