Facebook has acquired Beat Saber developer Beat Games, the company announced.
While Beat Games will join Oculus Studios, it will continue to operate as an independent studio, as well as continue to ship content and updates for Beat Saber across all currently supported platforms.
“Beat Games’ accomplishments are already impressive, but Facebook and the Beat Games team know that there is so much more that can be done across VR, games, and music,” said Oculus director of content Mike Verdu in a blog post. “They have only scratched the surface with Beat Saber in terms of social features, new modes, music, and more. We are thrilled to join forces to see where this talented team takes VR gaming in the future.”
Verdu also mentioned that the company is “exploring many ways to accelerate virtual reality,” and that “next year is going to be an incredible one of virtual reality game launches and announcements.”
