Last week Ubisoft posted an update on the PS5 backwards compatibility. The article detailed how some Assassin’s Creed games won’t support the PS5 for reasons unknown to us. These games include Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, all the Chronicles games, Risk and more. However, shortly after posting the article listing the incompatible games, the developer deleted it.
The original post claimed the following Ubisoft games would not run on PS5. Ubisoft said that “most of our back catalogue of games will have backward compatibility between the next and current generation of consoles, with a few exceptions”
- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
- Chronicles Trilogy Pack
- Chronicles: India
- Creed Chronicles: China
- Creed Chronicles: Russia
- Star Trek: Bridge Crew
- Werewolves Within
- Space Junkies
We are not sure why the developer backtracked on the games. They reached out to Gamatsu saying;
Right now it is unclear whether or not these Ubisoft games do indeed run on the PS5. With the console launch just a few weeks away, perhaps Sony will work with the developer to make sure they do? There’s no doubt that PS4 owners still play these games especially when it comes to games like Risk and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. Let’s just hope Sony’s original list of incompatible games was correct and that at launch users are not surprised to find more games not working on their new console.
I am sure many gamers will try these listed games out on launch day just to see whether or not they work on the PS5. Perhaps the developer will reissue a statement about the games soon.
