Beat Saber developer acquired by Oculus Studios
Beat Saber is one of the best games currently on VR, a definite system seller. So much so, that Oculus Studios wants a piece of that success and announced that they’re acquired Beat Games, the developer of the rhythm-based music game.
Oculus Studios director of content, Mike Verdu, made the announcement on a blog post.
“Today we’re announcing that Beat Games is joining us in our quest to bring VR to more people around the world,” Verdu said. “They will join Oculus Studios as an independently operated studio in Prague, continuing to create new ways for people to experience music and VR gaming. Most importantly, what the community has come to love about Beat Saber will remain intact. Beat Games will continue to ship content and updates for Beat Saber across all currently supported platforms, now with even more support from Facebook.”
A short FAQ followed the announcement ensuring that Beat Saber will continue to be supported on all platforms as well as support modders, as long as they follow Oculus policies. There was no mention of any exclusive content for Oculus devices or if there’s a sequel to the game in the works. Check out the full announcement here.
