It has additionally found success partnering with games like Vader Immortal – A Star Wars VR Series, Beat Saber, Moss and Superhot, so the choice to double down on VR gaming is not a total surprise.
Particulars on which games Facebook plans to accumulate are vague. “We cannot comment on particular partnerships. However, we’ll proceed to focus on expanding our library and reaching broader gaming audiences for years to come,” an Oculus spokesperson instructed The Info. It isn’t clear when Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell will arrive, nevertheless it’s safe to say, we will count on more VR games for Oculus headsets soon.
