Vertigo Games teased that its long-awaited co-op VR zombie shooter After the Fall would be getting some “big news” to share at today’s Facebook Connect, but it seems the company had something bigger in mind. The VR studio and publisher announced a new partnership with Facebook which will bring five new VR games to the Oculus platform.

After the Fall is headed to all major headsets on December 9th, and on its heels comes the revelation that five more VR games will arrive from the publisher-development studio over the coming years.

It calls calls them “high-end titles”, which are said to include “fan favorite game worlds from Deep Silver and others.”

Interestingly, the deal doesn’t stipulate complete platform exclusivity, which so far has been Facebook’s modus operandi when it comes to signing big, multi-year content deals like this. Still, you shouldn’t rule out timed exclusivity.

Vertigo Games is a prolific force in the VR industry. It’s brought a number of VR titles to market including Arizona Sunshine, Skyworld, Unplugged, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and more. It also announced it had acquired Amsterdam-based VR development studio Force Field in August, which has worked on VR experiences like Anne Frank House VRCoaster Combat, and Landfall.

At the time, the studio said it was currently in development of “an unannounced AAA game based on a well-known IP.”

The German-Austrian developer and publisher Deep Silver has produced a mind-boggling number of titles across popular game series such as Saints Row, Chivalry, Metro Exodus, and more. Like Vertigo Games, Deep Silver is a division of Koch Media.

    So sad to loose this developer. Could have continued making great games.

      I think it is good news, they will have more funds for making great VR games. Also the article says “They aren’t exclusive to Oculus” so I don’t think this is sad news.

        Yeah this is a big shock. Great news all around. Even if it’s a time exclusive. Thank you Facebook for doing something great for ALL VR early adopters.
