VR fans are in for a treat.

                                                                            Story Highlights

  • The Meta Quest is Meta’s signature VR headset. While the original Quest is getting shut down, the company is pouring its effort into the development of the Meta Quest Pro and Quest 2. 
  • Meta has announced that it has over 150 titles in active development for the Meta Quest. 
  • Over $1.5 billion has been spent by the company on games and apps. 

Meta has confirmed in their recent developer blog post that they have funded over 300 titles since 2019 and currently have 150 more titles in active development. Furthermore, 40 of their released titles have generated over $10 million in revenue, with titles generating $20 million doubling year over year, which are impressive numbers for a tech that is largely considered to be on the niche side.

Meta has funded plenty of big hits over the years with titles such as Among Us VR, Bonelab, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners, Blade and Sorcery: Nomad, and plenty more. Meta boasts that since its inception, it’s managed to hold over 500 titles on the Meta Quest store. The company has also spent over $1.5 billion on games and apps. Meta also unveiled the name of their VR games program, called “Oculus Publishing.”

Chris Pruett, Meta Director of Content Ecosystem and Head of Third-party Game, when speaking to the crowd at GDC, mentioned that there is a lot more potential and untapped growth for Quest 2. He also mentioned that users who jumped into the Quest system later rather than sooner have higher expectations, expecting games that deliver the quality you’d see from a modern game console.

The cohorts of Quest customers over time, the ones coming in recently, look very different than the early enthusiasts. Their expectations are like those of a modern game console.”

Meta is also going to kill off the original Quest, with features and options being stripped off the system right now while pushing headfirst with the Quest Pro and Quest 2. It is reported that the company will cease all support and updates for the Quest by 2024. Meta addressed user concerns regarding the Quest’s shutdown, suggesting that the hardware was now old and outdated.

The VR space is currently experiencing a ton of competition, with PSVR 2 and Valve Index pushing the boundaries of what’s capable in VR and Quest 2 being the most accessible entry point into the VR ecosystem. With an influx of solid releases such as the recently released Horizon Call of The Mountain, which received a 3.5/5 from eXputer, as well as Resident Evil Village VR, the VR space is in a great state as of now.
