Ubisoft announced its own backward compatibility list for playing older PS4 games on PS5 today. Instead of sharing a list of older PS4 titles that won’t be supported on Sony’s next-generation consoles, Ubisoft has flagged these titles on its own website.
The French publisher said that the following nine games released for PS4 will not work on PS5:
- Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
- Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Trilogy Pack
- Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles India
- Assassin̵7;s Creed: Chronicles China
- Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles Russia
- Star Trek: Bridge Crew
- The werewolf inside
- Space addict
Interestingly, these games don’t appear on Sony’s PS5 backward compatibility list, which currently has ten titles the company says won’t work on the new console. By contrast, all Ubisoft titles released on Xbox One will run on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S consoles, according to the company.
Sony has previously said that the PS5 will support “the majority” of PS4 titles with more than 4,000 games released on this console that are expected to be playable on next-generation hardware, but they will. There are a few limitations.
The most surprising thing is the fact Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Space addict, two PlayStation VR titles, are said to be not backwards compatible. Sony has said that the PS5 will support PlayStation VR, but you’ll need a special adapter to use the headphones with the new console.
