Ubisoft is currently developing a "number of games" that will support virtual reality devices when they begin hitting next year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said during an analyst call yesterday.

"We believe a lot in virtual reality because we see that it is really giving a chance for gamers to be more immersed in worlds, and we are developing a certain number of games that are going to take advantage of this new possibility," he said in response to a question about supporting virtual reality hardware.
