There are quite a few games set to launch alongside or soon after the tech releases.

These titles include: Land’s End by Ustwo Games, Oculus Arcade, Bandit Six: Salvo by Climax Studios, and Dead Secret by Robot Invader.

Each of the aforementioned games are now available on the Oculus Store.

Gunjack by CCP and Anshar Wars 2 by OZWE are to be released “soon”.
