Will “Fortnite” play on Meta’s Oculus Quest 2?
HYPEX said it may be available in the Meta Quest 2 device, with “Fortnite” soon offering “adequate VR support” for the title. However, there is no information or comment from Epic Games regarding this unique digital experience claimed by the leaker, with news likely remaining speculation for the game.
Quest 2 is one of the most prominent VR devices currently, offering diverse mixed reality experiences for the world.
Updates and virtual reality of “Fortnite”
Epic Games and Battle Royale “Fortnite” haven’t had any previous leaks about bringing its expertise into the world of virtual reality, but the time has come for the company now that the virtual reality industry is booming. However, last year there was news that Epic Games was developing a metaverse and virtual world as one of its projects, already securing $ 1 billion for the new world.
Sony is one of the companies that has invested in the so-called digital reality of Epic Games, with no updated information on the metaverse or its development.
However, it is a much loved project by the company, especially since Epic Games’ “Fortnite” has proven to be a major platform with metaverse capabilities in the present. Several online activities and concerts took place in the game, and this allowed the audience to experience it from a distance.
However, the “Fortnite” experience doesn’t have the ability to see through VR lenses or headsets, as well as control it using motion controllers that are prevalent among AR / VR devices. For now, this leak remains a piece of information still debated and no official confirmation of the “Fortnite” VR project is available from Epic.
