What is the next BIG game from Team Oculus?

Seems Asgard's Wrath and Stormland have made their VR marks although from reading the thoughts around here and other places neither game has had the same addictive  qualities as No Man's Sky or widely revered as Lone Echo (that's my personal interpretation). Valve are taking all   a lot of the credit right now for pushing VR into the mainstream with HL:Alyx which must hurt a little if you've been championing the Oculus cause up until now (Oculus The Beat Sabre Quest aside). So what's next for team Oculus. Surely they can bring it back into the fold. Lone Echo 2 was announced but what about a partnership with Ubisoft to bring Assassin's Creed VR or Splinter Cell VR games to the platform. Oculus are really pushing Vader Immortal but that's a good use of the Star Wars Licence but not a full-on game in the same league as the others I've just mentioned. I think now would have been a great time for Oculus to announce exclusivity of Resident Evil 7 but I guess the talks with Capcom didn't come to any agreements.  So what's next Oculus don't let Valve take all the limelight for all the hard ground-work you already put in to VR. All you need to do is come up with a teaser trailer of <insert big game name here> with a logo and coming soon and it will raise heart rates. This town is big enough for the both of you.

    I think Oculus focus may be elsewhere at this time.

    With the announcement of HL:ALYX a lot more eyes are on VR right now. People are looking for solutions to play HLA but not necessarily wanting to fork-out the massive cost of the Index hardware. It would be a great time to push the Oculus brand beyond Oculus Quest Vader adverts and Beat Sabre, even more-so if there were other enticements such as another cool game to think about. Their focus might be elsewhere (mobile VR) but it's they, who like Valve have the resources to develope top-tier software or at least acquire the studios to produce it.

    What about Respawn’s Medal of Honour VR game? I think that’s the next Oculus PCVR title to look forward to. I’m sure it’ll have another round of PR hype when it gets close to release.

    I think HL:Alyx is driving as many sales if not more to Rift S than to Index.

    For example theres a Steam Forums post doing the rounds on all the VR and Gaming subreddits at the moment of a VR naysayer and ranter about HL:A being a VR exclusive eating crow after buying a Rift S in order to play HL:A and being blown away and his misconceptions about VR cleaned out by 'That Robot Demo'. LOL.

    Agreed, Medal of Honor is number 1, well after Alyx, for now ;)

    I'm not that worried about content. When newcomers start to explore existing titles I believe many will find a large number of awesome titles. There's so much high-quality content that I haven't even finished 50% of what I bought - like Wilson's Heart, Chronos, Mage's Tale, Arizona Sunshine, Obduction, Trover, Asgard's Wrath and much much more.

    What they should do: The Sims.
    It's one of the best selling games of all time. A huge modding community, but people still do micro transactions to buy clothes and furniture and DLC packs.
    Imagine them advertising it as people actually getting to live in their Sims' house with them. Or you could take over a Sim and control them. Or zoom out and be a deity playing with a dolls house.

    Or Star Citizen. Just think of the audience: people who pay huge amounts for an unfinished product. One of my students had paid over a thousand dollars for ships in the "game". Just stick a Star Citizen logo on the side of a Rift-S and it will sell VR like crazy. RSI doesn't even need to add VR support, just say "it's on the way" and people will buy it. :)

    There could be some surprise titles that get announced shortly before release.
    Asgard's Wrath was such a title. It was being worked on for nearly 3 years, but it was only announced back in March before it's October release.

    The announcement trailer is from February 5 2019, and you're right it was in development many years before. Funny, I could have sworn I've read about the game in 2018, but doing a detailed search using Google I get no results from 2018. I might be thinking of Stormland which was announced June 2018...

    I see a couple of titles in the works, but with not much talk about future PC -VR headsets, I have to wonder what will come after that. I'm still not sure if Oculus Quest will be Rift 2. I guess only time will tell.

    2020 will be about a Go 2 so - any talk about a Rift 2 might be out the door until 2021. There might be a Quest Pro I heard rumors of that instead of releasing a GO 2 thus doping GO and instead moving Quest into that position and lowering the price of Quest 1 while Quest Pro will take over the current price later down the road.

    As for software - It sounds like they will focus on mobile titles a little more than PC titles - not that they wont work on both - but because GO/Mobile headset is up next as for a refresh on the hardware so they would be better to push their events for that.

    Any upgrade to GO will more than likely place it pretty close to Quest in terms of current hardware with the only difference will be possible camera spots and coming with controllers or not. Witch would make the most sense for next anyways. As for Rift 2 - am not sure - too much hush hush atm on that front:) It sounds like they're happy with the Rift S for now and with Quest Link to still sell PC software until 2021. Then we should hear about a Rift 2 by early 2021 or late Oct 2020.

    Personally - I think they mess up their release cycle pretty badly. Quest/Go should have been release at the same time this year and their Rift 2/better S next year instead of releasing a different product every year. There is just too much over lap and hardware improvements that going to make the others just feel out of place.

    BTW, I hope this is ok for me to post this in here.

    But regarding games to look forward to playing in VR on our Rift S or CV1...what about Cyberpunk 2077?

    I know it's not designed for VR but will we be able to play it in VR regardless using some kind of software? Does bigscreen or virtual desktop work for this yet?

    I'd only ever accept that if they gave it a battery that could last 6+ hours. I hear current Quest only last 2 hours? That's the one thing that puts me off Quest.

    I still really hope Oculus push for high end VR and bring us CV2 within next 12-18 months.

    I'd even be happy if they announced it next year and said it's not coming for another year or so, at least we could all talk over the specs and have something to look forward to! :wink:

    If it uses the same Engine as The Witcher 3 which I don't think it does then you can play it on a big screen but probably won't get any 3D effect.  If it uses an engine which is compatible then you might be able to hack-it with things like Tri-def and get a big screen and 3D effect. As for using VorpX or something similar to get pseudo VR who knows how that will turn out.

    I get about 2-3 hours out of my Quest and by then I am usually done playing whatever game I was playing to break for at least a few hours or work. By the time I pick it back up - its already charge and ready for another 2-3 hours of play. I also have a battery pack and can get another hour if I really need to. With Link - that limitation is going to be even a lesser one if your goal is to still have a mobile headset + play PC games on the side.

    I know what you mean, I've been waiting for Resident Evil 7 to come to PC VR for years now, just doesn't seem to be happening.

    I wonder if Oculus even know that we're waiting for this? Do you think we need to all message them on twitter or something?

    @SkScotchegg - Nothing wrong with hoping, but with nothing coming out of Oculus, it makes me think that a highend Rift for PC -VR is not coming. The last thing they said about standalone PC -VR, is that it would be cheap from now on and you don't build a highend VR headset on the cheap. That might happen in years to come when new tech has arrived and is cheap enough to produce.

    Here's hoping I'm wrong, but I have strong doubts because Oculus don't really talk about stand alone PC -VR anymore.

    Nakamura's Fall of course. All I need is funding from Oculus to the tune of £1m to get it finished.

    I'm looking at making it with IK and a full body at the moment but may have to ditch that idea unless I can work out how to adjust things for people of different heights. Haven't been able to work on it for a week and a half cos I've been ill with a REALLY bad cold.

    I dont understand how battery life would stop you. When I know I'm playing more than 2 hours I wear on my side a battery pack that is not at all cumbersome and gives hours of extra life. I think you would be happy with it.

     I think this was already done. I am of the belief it's Capcom not Oculus that's the problem here. Maybe they don't want to play ball with Facebook?
