Oculus released a video yesterday highlighting some of the upcoming games for Quest, the 6DOF standalone VR headset set to launch in Spring 2019. To our surprise, not only did we see that Vacation Simulator was prominently featured, but we also caught a glimpse of the long-standing success Job Simulator (2016) too.

Owlchemy Labs confirmed with Road to VR that Job Simulator will indeed be a launch title for Quest. The game—itself a launch title on Vive, Oculus Touch, and PSVR—has seen its fair share of success over its three-year’s existence, winning plenty of awards and nabbing the number one spot three years in row for best-selling VR title on PlayStation Store (2016, 2017, 2018).

The game’s sequel, Vacation Simulator, isn’t a Quest launch title however; it’s set to release sometime this holiday season on Quest, although it will launch on Rift and Vive first (April 9th), and then follow on PSVR at some point this summer.

We went hands-on with Vacation Simulator at last year’s GDC, and it proved to be a more expansive game that has refined many of the interactions introduced in Job Simulator. While it not only promises something of a story line to follow, the studio has included a number of new things to the series such as a custom avatar system, and also the possibility of using your AR-capable smartphone to interact with players while they’re playing in VR.

    I don’t know why these games are so popular. The first one was cool to demo your new VR system but that’s the extent of it.
