Meta has announced that it will be shutting down three virtual reality (VR) games in March of next year. The games include Dead and Buried, Dead and Buried II, and Bogo. Dead and Buried and its sequel are VR shooter games, while Bogo is a VR pet simulator. The announcement came without any explanation from the company.
According to reports, gamers have been receiving emails stating that Dead and Buried will no longer be supported after March 15, 2024. The email also mentioned that players can continue to enjoy the game on their Rift, Rift S, or Quest devices until the specified date.
Similar shutdown messages have been sent to owners of Dead and Buried II and Bogo, with the same end date of March 15, 2024. However, no explanation has been provided for the decision to shut down these games.
It is worth noting that Bogo is not even a multiplayer game that relies on online servers. Therefore, Meta could have simply made it incompatible with newer headsets instead of completely removing it from users.
In other news, Meta recently announced its plans to expand Horizon Worlds beyond virtual reality and release it on mobile and the web. The company stated that users will be able to hang out with friends, enjoy comedy shows, and attend free concerts and events from any web-connected device. The move aims to provide a way for users to stay connected and avoid missing out on the fun.
