Rumor has it via that Facebook is making waves within the industry, looking to buy up studios or sign exclusive deals to bring some major intellectual properties into the VR space.

According to The Information, the company has been talking to studios in an attempt to bring major game franchises to their VR platform, with eyes on Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed for example.

Sources close to Facebook's plans have said that there are already deals in place with Ubisoft, but this has not yet been verified, with the deal being spearheaded by co-founder of Naughty Dog, Jason Rubin, who is now the vice-president of special gaming initiatives at the social media company.

This all ties into Oculus, a company owned by Facebook, who have also released the Oculus Quest, the new wireless version of their headset.

 The company is allegedly also talking to other companies such as Electronic Arts, as well as looking to buy smaller development studios to develop exclusively for the platform.
