Lionel Raynaud has provided some comments in regards to Ubisoft, the publisher of “Watch Dogs” and other upcoming titles, potentially supporting the “Oculus Rift” and “Project Morpheus” headsets. According to a report from Aus Gamers on March 20, the creative vice president believed that both devices would need to perform well in the marketplace before his company would consider developing for the platforms.
Lionel Raynaud stated that the “Oculus Rift” and “Project Morpheus” need to sell at least a million units in order to be considered “viable for development.” You can find some screens from the “Watch Dogs” video game with the slideshow gallery to the left of this article and the comments from the executive of Ubisoft below (courtesy of Aus Gamers and VG247):

The new intellectual property may not be completely suitable for the “Oculus Rift” and “Project Morpheus” since it takes places from a third-person perspective as opposed to the first-person view. The video game is set to come out on May 27 for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Nintendo Wii U version remains without a release date window.
The commercial release for the “Oculus Rift” is expected to occur sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. Sony Computer Entertainment, on the other hand, has not yet announced when their virtual reality headset would be released in the North American region.
