What you need to know

  • Oculus and Respawn Entertainment are working on a new first-person combat game.
  • Respawn is known for Apex Legends and Titanfall.
  • The title should be unveiled at Oculus Connect in September.
  • Attendees will be able to get their hands on a playable demo.

A couple of years ago, Oculus announced that Respawn Entertainment — now owned by EA — was working on exclusive "AAA" virtuality reality (VR) game for its platform. Since then, we haven't heard much about the project, but that's about to change very soon. According to a report by Game Informer, Respawn's VR game will be revealed at Oculus Connect (OC6) in September.

Oculus said the following on Twitter. A "first-person combat title" doesn't necessarily mean a shooter, it could also be a melee game.

OC6 is also an amazing opportunity to see the latest from game developers around the world. Respawn Entertainment... Apex Legends and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order... will join us at this year's show to reveal a new AAA first-person combat title made in partnership with Oculus Studios, including the first hands-on playable demo.

It's unclear if this title is set in the Titanfall universe like Apex Legends, or is the beginning of a new universe. We'll find out soon enough. Are you excited about the game? Let us know.
