In a post on Facebook, Metta announced that it will hold the next Quest Gaming Showcase on June 1, 2023 at 10am PT and promises that the offerings of apps, games, and updates will be double that of the 2022 Showcase. Previous editions featured major topics such as Ghostbusters VR, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners Chapter 2, And VR among us For Oculus Quest 2.
The third installment of the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase will focus on the year ahead for Meta Quest games. It will feature pre-show game trailers and post-show roundtables with VR developers. June is traditionally a big time for the gaming industry in terms of new game reveals and announcements. Metta plans to grab the limelight first with other big events like Summer Gamefest on June 8th, Xbox Game Showcase and Ubisoft Showcase on June 11th, and launch its own event on June 1st.
It aims to make this year’s event bigger than ever. If last year’s 12-game showcase was any indication, we expect 24 games to be announced this summer. Meta posted a short teaser on his Facebook page.. He’s kept a tight lid on any name format for the games so far, but we do know. Previous announcements, it is working on more than 150 Quest games.. While they are about to announce the double titles, Meta’s back-to-back layoffs of 11,000 and 10,000 employees have reportedly affected the pace of growth.
The aging Quest 2 VR headset was announced almost three years ago. We can’t expect Quest 3 until the MetaConnect 2023 showcase in October 2023. This showcase can be expected to focus only on the software side of things.
