Angry Birds is coming to “major” VR headsets in early 2019.
Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs is on the way from Resolution Games in partnership with Rovio. Details are extremely light on the title — there’s no trailer yet — with a press release saying players will “swoop in on a remote island to take on the infamous green pigs with the help of their favorite Angry Birds characters.” Yeah, that certainly sounds like an Angry Birds game.
Resolution Games also built a version of Angry Birds for the Magic Leap One AR headset and we’ve confirmed with the company, which raised investment funds earlier this year, that they are initially focused on 6DoF controls for the Isle of Pigs VR game and that they are aiming to bring the title to both standalone and and PC-based headsets.
“Angry Birds lends itself perfectly to VR, where players can experience the already highly engaging characters and gameplay mechanics in a much more tangible and immersive way,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games, in a prepared statement. “Just as Angry Birds was applauded for its intuitive controls and gameplay on mobile, we feel Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs will continue that legacy for VR.”
