Ubisoft revealed its backward compatibility list
to highlight all the PS4 games that won’t run on the PS5. Ubisoft flagged the
titles on its website, instead of releasing the list at Sony’s website. But it
looks like that the list may have been incorrect, as the company immediately
withdrew it from the website.
According to the Ubisoft representative they have
pulled the Connect article along with the forum post that talked about
backwards compatibility for now as there is a chance of inaccuracies regarding
the Ubisoft titles, playable on the incredible PS5.
In the list, Ubisoft claimed that these nine games
would be incompatible with the latest gaming console- PS5.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Trilogy Pack
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles India
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Russia
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles China
Star Trek: Bridge Crew
Ubisoft announces the release of the right list of
games by the upcoming week.
Surprisingly, these games weren’t mentioned in
Sony’s PS5 backward compatibility list, which for now has ten games that Sony
claims will not be functional on the latest console. On the other hand, all the
titles revealed by Ubisoft on the Xbox One will run on Microsoft’s Xbox Series
X and S consoles says the company.
Earlier, Sony claimed that an “overwhelming
majority” of PS4 titles would be compatible on PS5, including over 4,000
games released on the console supposed to be functional on the next-gen
hardware, but with certain limitations.
Surprisingly, two PlayStation VR titles, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Space Junkies, are presumably not backward
compatible. Sony has already announced that the PS5 will run with the
PlayStation VR, but for that, users need to have a special adapter to use the
headset with the latest console.
