Facebook has acquired virtual reality game, that BigBox VR, makers of the battle royale VR title Population: One, will be joining Oculus Studios.
POP: ONE burst onto the VR scene just nine months ago and has consistently ranked among the top performing titles on the Oculus platform, bringing together up to 24 people at a time to log in, play and compete in a virtual world.
The game, which is available on both the Oculus Store and Steam, “will continue to be supported on all of its current platforms,” according to Verdu. And the game will continue to receive regular updates, BigBox VR says on its website. But it’s not yet clear what bigger changes might be underway due to the acquisition. “BigBox VR has big plans for the future of POP: ONE and for other projects, but we’re not ready to share details just yet,” Verdu says vaguely. Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 retails for $299 and the company has said that it outsold all of its previous devices combined in its first few months.
