Facebook is getting Beat Games, the studio liable for computer generated reality megahit Beat Saber. That is a VR music game where players must hit flying boxes with shining laser swords. Beat Saber had a blockbuster debut on Oculus, SteamVR, and PlayStation VR headsets. Presently, Beat Games will carry its ability to making VR encounters as an Oculus Studios first-party group.
“Today we’re announcing that Beat Games is joining us in our quest to bring VR to more people around the world,” Oculus content boss Mike Verdu writes in a blog post. “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.”
What’s more, on the off chance that people are a Beat Saber fan — particularly in case people’re playing on PSVR or with a Vive — this is nothing to stress over. Beat Games is going to keep supporting Beat Saber on each stage pushing ahead.
“Most importantly, what the community has come to love about Beat Saber will remain intact,” writes Verdu. “Beat Games will continue to ship content and updates for Beat Saber across all currently supported platforms, now with even more support from Facebook.”
They are not catching this’ meaning for Beat Saber and the studio?
By obtaining Beat Games, Oculus Studios is getting a group of VR veterans. Also, the distributer is promising to give the studio a chance to keep on working autonomously. This is about Facebook giving assets to Beat Games to deliver content for computer generated reality. Verdu says that they sees how large organizations can destroy littler groups. What’s more, they needs to maintain a strategic distance from that.
“I’ve been in the industry for a while and have seen that firsthand,” writes Verdu. “However, I’ve also seen and been a part of some incredible success stories. The story we aim to prove over time is this: An indie studio joins forces with some like-minded allies, and together they find a way to push VR to new heights.”
What’s more, shouldn’t something be said about the solid Beat Saber people group and modding? A ton of that substance skirts around or inside and out damages copyright law. Facebook is the sort of organization that might need to get rid of that. What’s more, Verdu makes that obvious.
“We understand and appreciate the value that modding brings to Beat Saber when done so legally and within our policies,” writes Verdu. “We’re going to do our best to preserve the value that mods bring to the Beat Saber player base. As a reminder, our most recent policy updates give more clarity to how developer mode is intended to be used, such as helping developers build their apps or for enthusiasts to explore new concepts. It is not intended for engaging in piracy or illicit modding, including mods that infringe on third-party IP rights or contain malicious code.”
Not long ago, Beat Games’ Jaroslav Beck said they was keen on the studio putting resources into littler VR devs. GamesBeat inquired as to whether this would change post-securing.
“I’m excited by the idea that the Beat Games founders could collaborate with other teams and provide creative leverage for other VR projects. We’ve yet to explore this specific notion with the leadership team at Beat Games. With that said, we share a passionate interest in accelerating VR and taking the medium to new heights,” Verdu said.
