Facebook acquires Beat Games

Beat Saber has become the “must-play” VR game this generation, showcasing just how much fun VR really can be, bringing with it a little bit of fitness and daily movement, something many of us lazy gamers lack.

And now, Facebook, the owners of Oculus Studios, have acquired Beat Games, the developers behind the rather fantastic rhythm-based game. The announcement came via an Oculus Blog Post by Mike Verdu of Facebook:

Today we’re announcing that Beat Games is joining us in our quest to bring VR to more people around the world. They will join Oculus Studios as an independently operated studio in Prague, continuing to create new ways for people to experience music and VR gaming.

The most important thing though is whether Beat Saber will continue to enjoy support on non-Oculus platforms such as the HTC Vive or PlayStation VR, and happily the answer is yes:

Most importantly, what the community has come to love about Beat Saber will remain intact. Beat Games will continue to ship content and updates for Beat Saber across all currently supported platforms, now with even more support from Facebook.

So if you do own the game on another platform, you shouldn’t worry about the support or possibly lack of content from the game going forward as it seems Facebook has no intention of pulling the plug there.
