Meta has made several new investments in its VR business, as well as acquiring the developers behind Resident Evil 4 and ReCore.
Most of the VR talk lately has been about Sony’s PlayStation VR2 and its particular emphasis on it, but it appears to be the Meta Quest 2 (born Oculus Quest 2) that’s the VR headset. the most successful of all time. .
I still don’t know when there will be a Meta Quest 3 in 2023 which seems to be the older option, but Meta is definitely gearing up for something bigger, as they have purchased three talented VR studios: Camouflaj, Armature Studio and Twisted Pixel.
Camouflaj was founded by producer and former Metal Gear Solid producer Ryan Payton, creative director of the sexy trailer. The video game will be showcased at Meta Quest 2 on November 3.
After all, it became clear that Sony had acquired a human-based license to play games and Camouflaj was simply a job for hire, so it’s really weird to find out that they own that license and that they take it with them.
The pros and cons of normal gameplay functionality are covered separately, as EA recently announced plans to offer non-exclusive single-player gameplay to viewers.
Armature was founded by a number of Ex-Retro Studios employees, but the only one who worked with ReCore was not happy. They finally found success with the VR version of Resident Evil 4 last year.
Twisted Pixel was a popular indie studio in the Xbox 360 era, with games like Splosion Man and its sequel, before violently launching LocoCycle and forcing the brand into virtual reality.
This week isn’t the only announcement made by MetaQuest, as it’s revealed that Xbox Cloud Gaming comes bundled with the headset.
In reality, the games are just going to be projected onto a big 2D virtual screen, like watching a movie, but it’s a little too good to keep that in mind.
It’s also interesting to see if it will inspire new interest in virtual reality from Microsoft, which has carefully ignored the technology, as much as Sony is involved.
