Meta’s announcement comes days before Apple is expected to present its much-awaited headset at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) next week.
The Mark Zuckerberg–owned company is persisting on having great metaverse ambitions despite setbacks. Last year, it unveiled the expensive $1,500 Quest Pro VR headset, and now it is working on bringing more gaming titles to the platform. Earlier this year, reports suggested that Roblox was planning to launch its game on Quest sometime in 2023.
Meta is also trying to expand the content library on these headsets. The company announced a deal with the NBA in January to offer 52 live games on the platform. In April, Meta announced that it’s partnering with Peacock for content streaming on Quest devices.
