Sanzaru Games, the minds behind Marvel Powers United VR (2018) and VR Sports Challenge (2016), is apparently teaming up with Oculus again to develop another VR game. Sanzaru says we should expect it “soon.”
Oculus teased the upcoming title in a tweet yesterday, which features a gif of a flaming gate.
Popping into Oculus Home, you’ll find the gate in your inventory under the name ‘Runic Door’—possibly meaning the game with have a Nordic flair. While the gate itself is devoid of any actual runes, the world tree from Norse mythology (Yggdrasil) is pretty unmistakable.
An Oculus spokesperson says in a Reddit post that users will “be impressed by the visual quality of this game. Also, the door asset is a simplified model and texture so it fits within the requirements of Oculus Home.”
While the studios haven’t confirmed anything beyond this, it’s safe to say this will be an Oculus Rift exclusive. The next big venue for Oculus is undoubtedly GDC 2019, which takes place between March 18th – 22nd in San Francisco, so it’s possible we’ll find out more in the coming weeks.
