PlayStation 5: Ubisoft Retracts List of Games that Won’t Support Backwards Compatibility

October 31, 2020 4:33 pm

Ubisoft has revealed a list to highlight the games that wouldn’t work on the PlayStation 5. This might come as disappointing news for the fans as Sony had initially announced that only ten titles won’t support backward compatibility.

Ubisoft deleted the post from its website soon after they had published it. It is possible that the list is incomplete or inaccurate, as Sony hasn’t provided an official word yet. More importantly, this goes against the statement that Sony made while talking about PS5’s backward compatibility. Sony went out on a limb to point out that only a handful of titles won’t support the feature.

Most of these titles were acceptable losses for the PlayStation patrons. However, if Ubisoft’s recent post is to be believed, the list could include some of the best titles that have released in the last few years.

It is unclear why Ubisoft deleted the post. It is possible that consumer backlash could have been one of the driving reasons. Sony has spoken about the benefits of backward compatibility at length stating that an overwhelming majority of titles will be playable on the next-gen hardware.

However, the following list of titles was published by Ubisoft.

  • Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
  • Risk
  • Werewolves Within
  • Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles China
  • Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Russia
  • Star Trek: Bridge Crew
  • Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles India
  • Space Junkies
  • Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Trilogy Pack

In contrast, all Ubisoft games that were developed for the Xbox One will make their way to Xbox Series S/X. Backwards compatibility has been a topic for much debate over the last few weeks. The update from Ubisoft raises a number of questions.

One, why didn’t Sony address these titles in the list that it mentioned earlier? Two, how many more titles will be added to the list?

The fans will only get an answer to these questions once an official word is out. Until then, stay tuned for more updates!
