GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
A new post on the Oculus blog has shared some details on how successful the Quest standalone headset has been for VR game developers. It says that, as of February 2021, over 60 titles on the store are generating over $1 million in revenue, while six titles are making over $10 million.
As a standalone device that doesn’t require a souped-up PC connection, the Oculus Quest lowered the barrier to entry for VR, and now developers are reaping the profits. The post not only explains how many developers are making millions through the Quest Store, but also shows that the number of developers passing that mark is rising rapidly, especially since the launch of the Quest 2.
When the Quest 2 came out in September last year, over 35 titles had generated revenue numbering in the millions. Just four and a bit months later, that number was almost doubled, with over 60 titles reaching the million-dollar benchmark.
