Beat Games, the developer behind VR arm-flailing rhythm-action smash Beat Saber, has been acquired by Facebook and is now officially part of the company’s Oculus Studios.
Announcing the acquisition in a new blog post, Facebook’s Mike Verdu positively quivered, “The shared experiences of games are profoundly memorable ones, and for millions of people, Beat Saber was their first encounter with immersive VR. Today we’re announcing that Beat Games is joining us in our quest to bring VR to more people”.
According to Verdu, Beat Games will join Oculus Studios as an independently operated developer, and will continue to be located in Prague. “The story we aim to prove over time is this,” he wrote, “An indie studio joins forces with some like-minded allies, and together they find a way to push VR to new heights.”
