4A Games had been noted as a virtual reality (VR) developer over a year ago as part of Oculus VR’s ‘Step into the Rift’ press conference, and yet nothing has since been discussed about the developer’s project. That is until now, as the studio has begun teasing their forthcoming VR videogame.
A new update to 4A Games’ social media channels reveals a 360 degree photo of the development team hard at work on an Oculus Rift videogame, including Oculus Touch compatibility. A countdown timer located on the wall indicates that a reveal is due at the same time as Oculus Connect 3. Given that the studio was first associated with VR development at an Oculus VR event, it’s easy to join the dots that point to a reveal at the company’s next event, taking place in San Jose next month.
The small amount of information that can be extracted from this 360 degree photo, and also the teaser image seen on this page, suggest that 4A Games are working on a science-fiction themed videogame. The studio found fame with the Metro series – which, bar a few necessary comfort adjustments, would certainly work well if adapted to VR – so eyes are on the studio for an impressive reveal.
VRFocus will be in attendance at Oculus Connect 3 next month, bringing you all the latest details on this and other videogame projects revealed at the show.
