Did E3 Just Confirm Xbox One VR Announcement?
Microsoft seems to be coming up with exciting announcements for the upcoming E3. But games don’t seem to be the main focus here. The E3 website suggests the Xbox One VR to be one of the announcements to be expected during the expo.Advertisement
While this may come as a shocker to Xbox fans, Sony has been hinting the release of PlayStation VR for the past few months, posing serious competition to Xbox One Scorpio. Moreover, rumors suggest that the Playstation 4.5/Neo is being developed to support VR games.
Microsoft still hasn’t provided official confirmation on the reveal of Xbox One VR. However, the E3 website has already updated a category for Xbox One VR, and according to VG 24/7, four developers have registered under it.
NeoGAF was the first to identify the E3 update, where it was announced that the four registered developers are 3DRudder, Readily Information, Maximum Games, and Rebellion, which is currently working on Battlezone VR for the Oculus Rift and PS VR. Perhaps the title would also release for Xbox One VR.
Ars Technica also confirmed last week that a major European studio wishing to remain anonymous is currently in progress of developing a VR game for Xbox One, scheduled to release in 2017.
In other news, a recent report from IGN declared Sony’s plan to screen the press conference of E3 live to fans via theaters. The audience will be able to experience E3 for free in over 85 movie theaters in the U.S., Canada and Latin America. The tickets will go live on May 31 at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET.
E3 is an annual video game conference that takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 14 – 16. Click here to know more.
