Respawn's mystery VR shooter will be revealed next month

Respawn announced that it was working with Oculus to create a VR game back in 2017, and we'll finally be able to see what they've been working on for the last couple of years at Oculus Connect 6 in September. 

All the 2017 teaser, below, told us was that Respawn was working on something. The smart money was on a shooter, which has now been confirmed. It's an FPS, and we'll be able to find out more when when it's revealed. There will also be a hands-on demo. 

Respawn's had a big year so far, with the surprise and extraordinarily successful launch of Apex Legends at the start of 2019 and, more recently, the full reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

A Titanfall VR romp would be a treat, but while there is another Titanfall game coming this year, it's got nothing to do with this. We'll just have to keep speculating until next month. 

Oculus Connect 6 starts on September 26.

He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
