Oculus VR’s Jason Rubin at Gamescom 2016: “We will announce a lot around Touch”

Many Oculus Touch titles will be announced before 2017, and you can expect some this week.

Oculus VR seems to be just warming up, and with the Oculus Touch having no release date but so much potential and build up there is a lot of excitement and plenty of great implication when a hint is dropped. During this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Oculus VR has teased more information on Oculus Touch.

Jason Rubin, Head of Content at Oculus VR, dropped a few more hints as to when we can hear more about Oculus Touch – although whether it would be about content or Oculus Touch itself is unclear. “You can probably imagine that at a trade show we will be hosting we will announce a lot around Touch.”

Rubin then also confirmed what had already been announced in Oculus VR’s blog: “We will be announcing 30 more titles for Touch before the end of the year.” Looking at the rest of this year, however, there are only a few more limited events that pose as perfect opportunities for the VR company to announce the rest of these titles. Other than Gamescom, there is EGX, Oculus Connect 3, and VRDC to come – as well as smaller events in between.

Launch titles will include Oculus Studio titles such as Unspoken, Dead * Buried, Rock Band VR, VR Sports Challenge, The Climb, Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, Pro Fishing Challenge VR, I Expect You to Die, Luna, Giant Cop, Job Simulator, Fantastic Contraption, and Oculus Medium will ship along with the Touch.

New titles include Wilson’s Heart, Ripcoil, Killing Floor: Incursion, and Superhot VR.

We can expect at least a few big bits of news over the next couple of days from the company, and VRFocus will be reporting on it as it comes out.
