Ubisoft detailed which of its PS4 games won’t work on PS5, but now it’s not sure

Earlier today, Ubisoft released its own backward compatibility list to point out which older PS4 games won’t run on the PS5. Instead of sharing that list at Sony’s website, Ubisoft flagged the titles on its own website — but it appears that list may have been inaccurate, and the company has now taken it down.

“We have pulled the Ubisoft Connect article and forum post regarding backwards compatibility for the time being as there may be inaccuracies involving the Ubisoft titles that will be playable on PS5,” an Ubisoft spokesperson told The Verge in an email.

Prior to taking down the post, Ubisoft claimed that the following nine games would not work on PS5:

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

Ubisoft tells us it should have the correct list of games next week.

Interestingly, these games do not appear on Sony’s PS5 backward compatibility list, which currently has ten titles that Sony says will not work on the new console. In contrast, all of the Ubisoft titles released on the Xbox One will run on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S consoles, according to the company.

Sony previously said that the PS5 will support an “overwhelming majority” of PS4 titles with more than 4,000 games released on the console expected to be playable on the next-gen hardware, but they will come with a few limitations.

What’s most surprising is that Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Space Junkies, two PlayStation VR titles, are supposedly not backward compatible. Sony has already said that the PS5 will support the PlayStation VR, but you will need a special adapter to use the headset with the new console.

Update October 30th, 8:42PM ET: Updated to include a statement from Ubisoft that confirmed the company has pulled its blog post.
