What you need to know
- Sanzaru Games is the developer of Asgard's Wrath.
- Facebook announced today that it has acquired Sanzaru Games.
- This acquisition follows the purchase of Beat Games back in November 2019.
Facebook purchased another company today in its bid to expand Oculus Studios. Facebook and Oculus are acquiring Sanzaru Games, developers of VR titles such as Asgard's Wrath. A press release stated that Sanzaru Games will continue to operate as it has been but with the backing of Oculus Studios and its parent company, Facebook.
Sanzaru is a veteran game developer—having shipped titles to multiple platforms in the past—as well as a VR pioneer: They've created four titles for the Oculus Platform since 2016, when they were the first developer to partner with the Oculus Studios team. They approach game design with three pillars in mind: great design, beautiful art (including animation and audio), and strong tech. It is this foundation that enabled Sanzaru to build a game as rich as Asgard's Wrath, and it's a strong foundation they will continue to build upon as we all push VR forward.
This purchase comes just a couple of months after Facebook acquired Beat Games, developers of the hit VR game Beat Saber. Sanzaru Games operates three different offices in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to its VR expertise, the studio has done support work in past, particularly for Sony, helping with games like The Sly Collection and the God of War Collection, as well as developing Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the PlayStation 3.
