Left4Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios has yet another Oculus Rift game in development. This one sounds like it takes inspiration from one of gaming’s most beloved franchises.
Head of VR Nate Mitchell teased the game in an Oculus Blog post today. “I’ve been getting some time in with the games we’re bringing to GDC and PAX East, like the latest from Turtle Rock Studios,” Mitchell wrote. “It reminds me of playing Zelda back when I was a kid — that sense of awe and wonder and larger-than-life adventure.”
Over on another blog post, Oculus confirmed the project was an adventure game. Could Turtle Rock be working on a true Zelda VR competitor? Platforms weren’t announced, though we’d expect this to either be an Oculus Rift or Oculus Quest game if not both.
Turtle Rock has quite an extensive history with VR and Oculus at this point. The team developed Face Your Fears, which has proven to be one of the most popular apps on Gear VR and Oculus Go. It also developed a gorgeous dungeon crawling RPG named The Well. Right now the studio is working on a sequel to Face Your Fears on Quest, too.
GDC 2019 kicks off on March 18th and runs through to March 22nd. PAX East, meanwhile, runs from March 28th to March 31st. We’re expecting lots of news out of Oculus at upcoming shows like these considering Quest’s spring 2019 release window is starting to approach. We’re also expecting the announcement of the rumored Oculus Rift S upgrade in the near future.
