Oculus Connect 6 is fast approaching, and registration for the event is now open.
Hopeful attendees can now sign up for a spot at this year’s developer conference. Note that Oculus Connect 6 isn’t a consumer show; it’s specifically designed for people making VR apps. That said, there’s some exciting stuff on the VR gaming front.
Earlier this year Oculus confirmed Respawn Entertainment’s long-anticipated VR game would debut at the show. Now Oculus has confirmed that the ‘AAA first-person combat title’ will be playable at the event.
We’ve been looking forward to this one for a while. Respawn is of course the developer behind Titanfall, Apex Legends and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Their Oculus exclusive was first announced back in 2017 and we’ve been asking after it ever since. Further details aren’t yet known but we’ll keep you posted.
Finally, Oculus confirmed the first batch of sessions and panels for this year’s show. Oculus for Business will be taking to the stage to talk about the logistics of running enterprise VR. A group of panelists will also discuss the secrets to success on the Oculus Store. Facebook Tech Comms Manager Lisa Brown Jaloza will also talk about ‘How AR + VR Connects Us to the World’. More sessions will be announced over the coming months.
Oculus Connect 6 runs on September 25 + 26. On top of these sessions you can expect the traditional opening keynote from top Facebook execs and the return of John Carmack’s app reviews. We’ll of course be at the show to bring you all of the latest headlines.
