Facebook is acquiring Beat Games, the developer of the most popular virtual reality game, Beat Saber. However, the studio will operate independently in Prague though it will be under the Oculus Studios.
Beat Saber is a rhythm game where players have to cut the colored blocks, which are the beats of the music with the help of lightsabers. The game is available on SteamVR, Oculus, and Playstation 4 VR. Oculus director of content Mike Verdu mentioned that the game will be supported on all platforms, and Beat Games will continue to ship content and updates.
Moreover, a 360-degree mode with more tunes for the VR rhythm game is scheduled to release next month. However, there are no mentions about whether there will be any potential sequels of the game available or not. Verdu also mentioned that Oculus and Facebook will continue to support the mods. Here is what he is noted:
We understand and appreciate the value that modding brings to Beat Saber when done so legally and within our policies. We’re going to do our best to preserve the value that mods bring to the Beat Saber player base. As a reminder, our most recent policy updates give more clarity to how developer mode is intended to be used, such as helping developers build their apps or for enthusiasts to explore new concepts. It is not intended for engaging in piracy or illicit modding, including mods that infringe on third-party IP rights or contain malicious code
