The recent acquisition of Beat Games by Facebook is hinting that the social media platform is trying its hands on the VR space. There were some rumors about the acquisition for some time, but the social media giant has confirmed it recently.
Beat Games is popular for developing the most popular online games including Beat Saber. Currently, Beat Games is working on several gaming projects and its acquisition is hinting that Facebook will join the gaming projects very soon.
According to GamersSuffice, Facebook is investing a lot in the VR space. Earlier, it acquired Oculus which is at the number one position as a VR manufacturer. Oculus has made VR gaming affordable with its device like Oculus Quest. The company has sold millions of units across the world and Beat Games’ Beat Saber is one of them. The acquisition move by Facebook is making a great sense about the social media giant entering in the gaming world.
Facebook has also confirmed that Beat Games will work with Oculus Studios but Beat Games will retain its independent development functions. Facebook will look for new ways to create a better experience of VR technology for users.
Beat Saber is about to bring new updates this year such as more music packs, UI changes, and others. Facebook is assisting Beat Games on a new Oculus device that will allow USB-C support. Currently, there is no news about the release of the new Oculus device, but the experts are expecting a holiday 2020 timeframe for the release.
