We may be seeing some brand new Oculus Studios titles in just over a months’ time.
Last week Oculus VP of Content Jason Rubin told fans to “Stay tuned to PAX East” for more Oculus Rift games over on Twitter. Rubin’s Tweet was in reference to last week’s release of Brass Tactics, the first Oculus Studios title of 2018. It’s quite possible, then, that we’re set to see new Oculus-published games for the Rift at PAX East, which takes place from April 5th – 8th in Boston.

Having said that, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some of these games before then. Next week sees the 2018 Game Developers Conference get underway in San Francisco. Over the last two years Oculus has used the event to reveal a slate of titles coming to the Rift and Gear VR over the next 12 months, and it could be planning to do the same this year. Given Rubin didn’t mention GDC in the tweet, though, Oculus may have different plans in store for 2018.
Currently we only know of a few Oculus Studios titles on the way, including Marvel Powers United VR and a VR shooter from the developers of Titanfall (though the latter isn’t due until 2019). We’re hoping the company has plenty of new experiences to reveal in the coming weeks, then.
