Every Oculus Store Game/App With Cross-Buy Between Rift and Oculus Quest

by David Heaney • May 21st, 2019

Oculus Quest is a standalone VR headset with room-scale positional tracking and Oculus Touch controllers.

Quest is primarily intended for people who don’t already own a gaming PC. But if you do own a PC and a Rift already, you might be wondering if you’ll have to purchase games, experiences, and apps you already own for Rift.

Or if Quest is your first Oculus headset, you might want to know whether you’d need to re-purchase games if you decide to get a Rift S to enter PC VR in the future.

The answer is that the Oculus Store system supports cross-buy, but it’s up to each developer. Here are all the titles we know of with confirmed cross-buy:
