Ubisoft already has a number of games in development for virtual reality devices, CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed, with a few of them due to arrive within the first year of the technology's release.

"We believe a lot in virtual reality because we see that it's 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 these new possibilities," Guillemot explained during Ubisoft's latest earnings call last night.

"What we are doing is working on the different brands we have to see how we can take advantage of those new possibilities but in making sure also that we don't suffer what comes with it, which is the difficulty to play a long time with those games."

The first major VR headsets are due to go on sale later this year, with a commercial release of the HTC Vive expected ahead of Christmas. Oculus Rift is also set for release in early 2016 with PS4 headset Project Morpheus due to arrive in the first half of the new year.

"We are very bullish about the potential," Guillemot continued. "We think it's going to bring more players to the universe of video games and we are going to come with our brands. We'll have a few titles coming in the first year and we'll have regular games coming following that."

Prices and exact release dates for the VR headsets have yet to be announced.
