We’re already expecting at least one big game reveal at Oculus Connect 3 this week, but it looks like another is on the way.
Ready At Dawn, the developer behind 2015 PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886, just teased that it will be revealing a new VR game at the developer conference in San Jose. In the below tweet, the studio notes that it’s on the way to the event and that fans should “Expect some cool stuff from us this week. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!”

That’s a pretty obvious and exciting giveaway.
Ready At Dawn was confirmed to be one of the Oculus Studios partners back at E3 2015. That means it’s more than likely working on an Oculus Rift exclusive title, but that’s about as much as we can speculate on at this point. The developer is known for cinematic games that get the most out of the platforms they’re appearing on; The Order is still one of the best looking PS4 titles while its God of War spin-offs for Sony’s PSP were technical marvels given the hardware they were running on. That’s a pretty useful skill set to be bringing to VR, where performance is everything.
Eslewhere, the developer is working on a non-VR game named De·formers.
Ready At Dawn isn’t the only studio we’re expecting to make its VR debut at OC3. Metro: 2033 developer 4A Games has been teasing a reveal of its own title during the event too. Could these two be the latest additions to the growing library of Oculus Touch compatible games? We’ll more than likely see both of these announced during tomorrow’s keynote speech, which gets underway at 10:00 am PT. We’ll of course be bringing you all the news from the show.
New games aren’t all we’re expecting to see from OC3 this week. Here are four other topics we’re expecting Oculus to talk about during the show.
