Ubisoft has announced it has partnered with Elijah Wood’s production company, SpectreVision, for its own virtual reality content.
The announcement came at the Sundance Film Festival, revealing that the two companies will be working together to “create, develop and produce interactive virtual reality content”.
It’s not clear at this stage what type of VR content the two companies will create together – animated or live-action for example – but it seems it will be based on the various IPs Ubisoft has under its belt.
SpectreVision will be working with Ubisoft’s FunHouse Studio over in Montreal, Canada.

Production company SpectreVision was founded in 2010 by actor Elijah Wood and producers Josh C. Waller and Daniel Noah.
“We’re thrilled to partner with an industry leader like Ubisoft to explore the innovative and burgeoning technology that is virtual reality,” explained SpectreVision’s Whalen.
“The diversity of Ubisoft’s portfolio of titles, from Assassin’s Creed to Zombi, makes for an ideal partnership with SpectreVision’s varied creative vision, as evidenced in films such as ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ and ‘Cooties’. Together, we can tell an infinite number of unique stories in a bold and original new format.”
“As a longtime gamer, I’m first and foremost a fan and admirer of Ubisoft,” added Elijah Wood. “So to be collaborating with them within the realm of VR is an incredible treat!”
