Next month will be the third anniversary of the launch of Oculus Rift, but the industry is much more focused on other products of the company, especially on the upcoming launch of Oculus Quest this spring.
The development company will work hard to help developers prepare their applications for the launch day or soon after. In the new blog posted on the Oculus developer page, the company described in detail what it expects from the developers, saying that a high bar will be set when it comes to content quality.
When it comes to online video game and content stores, each has its own set of parameters related to the quality of applications from the studios. For example, Steam is not particularly strict in its criteria, while the Oculus Store or Viveport is not so easy to allow developers to present something on their platform. And getting into the PlayStation VR store is even more difficult.
With Oculus Quest, it seems that the company wants to keep this bar quite high:
“We hope that when players put on the Oculus Quest headset, they will be amazed at the talent and ingenuity that modern VR developers have. And therefore we must pay close attention to the quality of our content. ”
Then Oculus adds:
“High-quality innovative games and applications, as a rule, are quite expensive to create, and developers need confidence that they have chosen a platform that will definitely return their investments and bring profit. We set a high level of content quality in Quest, higher than ever before, in order to create a platform in which developers know that their investments have a greater chance of success. ”
With Oculus Quest, Facebook ensures that the launch can be the largest this year. The headset will be on display at the 2019 game developer conference (GDC) next month, and Oculus will also participate in the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June. Recall that earlier Oculus said more than 50+ titles that will be available at the time of release of the device. This list includes Moss, Robo Recall and The Climb.
Facebook Developer Conference (F8) will be held in late April. That’s when the official launch of Oculus Quest is expected.
