As part of the annual Oculus Connect event to showcase advancements in virtual reality, Respawn Entertainment (developers of the Titanfall franchise) announced that it's working on a VR game in partnership with Oculus. Very few details on the project itself were shown, but we know it's going to be a first-person action game and it's coming sometime in 2019.
Respawn director Peter Herschmann clearly stated that it is "super secret" and not related to Titanfall or Star Wars--back in March, the company said its third-person Star Wars game is staying under wraps. This VR project will be an entirely new franchise. However, the announcement video detailed that the company is trying to capture a realistic first-person combat experience. CEO Vince Zampella said, "We really want to depict being a soldier in combat in a more fully fleshed out and realistic way."
Titanfall 2 released last year and received critical acclaim; GameSpot's own Mike Mahardy awarded it a 9/10 and stated in his Titanfall 2 review, "It's every bit as kinetic and fluid as the first Titanfall--but in many respects, it's a much better shooter." The game even earned the third place spot on our Best Games Of 2016 list.
