12 VR Games Featured At Oculus Showcase

Facebook’s Oculus division showed off 12 virtual reality games during the company’s Oculus Gaming Showcase event which took place on April 21st. Some of the big-name titles featured include Resident Evil 4, After the Fall, and Star Wars: Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge Part II.

“With the launch of Oculus Quest 2 and the release of some awesome games like POPULATION: ONEStar Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s EdgeThe Walking Dead: Saints & SinnersMedal of Honor: Above and Beyond, and more, 2020 was a banner year for VR,” it reads on the Oculus website. “And 2021 is shaping up to be jam-packed with similar momentum. Today, we celebrated how far VR has come—and all the amazing places it’s about to go—with the first-ever Oculus Gaming Showcase.”

Virtual Reality is enjoying a reported “resurgence.” Oculus said, back in February, that 60 different games generated over $1 million in sales. On top of that, three games recorded $10 million in sales.

The Profit‘s Take:

The Oculus Quest (and Quest 2) are the primary reason for the VR “resurgence”. They represent the biggest leap from a VR hardware standpoint in the last few years. VR is all about immersion and the lack of tethers and base stations with the Quest series makes for a very compelling experience. Superior hardware and a roster of developers making money should give Oculus a comfortable lead for the time being.
