 Table of Content(toc)


Meta, the parent group of Facebook, recently held the Meta Quest Gaming showcase for 2022. The second of its kind annual event demonstrated a series of games in a 30-minute presentation, all of which are meant for Oculus Quest, the company's VR gaming platform.

So as can be judged, VR gaming is definitely an important segment as far as Meta's plans for the near future are concerned.

Why not? After all, the technology major already has the whole ecosystem present for a gaming experience in virtual worlds. It already sells the Oculus Quest VR headsets and gear, and it is among the most popular options available in the market right now. All Meta has to do now is bring more content onto the platform and Oculus Quest will be the go-to option for gamers seeking VR experiences.

A look at the list of games that Meta has planned for this year and the next shows just that. From Ghostbusters to Among Us, the company has some major gaming titles already set for a VR conversion. So, without any delay, here is a look at them all.

Ghostbusters VR

The franchise needs no introduction and Meta's plan to come up with a VR version of it is largely based on that. As Meta mentions in its blog, Ghostbusters VR will let you "track, blast, and trap ghosts" in the Ghostbusters universe, with options for single as well as multiplayer gaming.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution

A sequel to The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, which was released two years ago, the game by Skydance Interactive will continue the story in New Orleans in a "more dangerous" setting than before. So, expect to face some dangerous zombie situations in virtual reality soon.


Set to release later this year, Bonelab will come as a successor to the hugely popular VR game Boneworks and will be available for both Quest 2 and PC VR. The game will have a brand new story following a character escaping execution and trying to uncover the truth about his/ her reality. Though the anticipation is more around the simulation and how the player's actions in real life interact with the virtual in-game objects.


The first officially-licensed NFL game to hit VR, NFL PRO ERA uses NFL game data to create an authentic on-the-field NFL VR experience. Created by StatusPRO, the game will let you practice or play championship matches, all the way to the Super Bowl.

Among Us VR

The hugely popular online multiplayer game is going to have a VR version by the end of 2022. The VR version will be produced in partnership with InnerSloth, Robot Teddy, and Schell Games. Meta has also announced a long-term partnership with Schell Games, known for creating interactive game experiences, for three more gaming titles, though details on these are yet to be shared.

Resident Evil 4 - The Mercenaries

Entirely rebuilt for VR by Armature Studio, Oculus Studios and Capcom, The Mercenaries is out now as a free update for those who own Resident Evil 4 on Meta Quest 2. The Meta Quest 2 version features exclusive online leaderboards as well as 20 new challenges. Completing these challenges will unlock new features, like a Big Head Mode, a black-and-white Classic Horror Mode, and Golden Gun skins. Players will even be able to use these items in the main Resident Evil 4 campaign.

These were some of the major titles that Meta announced at the event for its Oculus Quest. Some of the other games that are also in the lineup include Beat Saber - Electronic Mixtape, Cities: VR, RUINSMAGUS, Moss: Book II, Espire 2 and Red Matter 2. While the rest are meant to be released later this year and next, Cities: VR is already up for pre-booking and will be available on Quest 2 starting April 28.
