Facebook gas acquired BigBox VR, creators of the famous battle royale computer-generated reality game named Population: One for an undisclosed sum.
‘Population: One’ has been a runaway hit, earning more than $10 million on the Oculus Store “after only a few months”.
“POP: ONE stormed onto the VR scene only nine months prior and has reliably positioned as one the top-performing titles on the Oculus platform, uniting up to 24 individuals all at once to connect, play, and compete in a virtual world,” said Mike Verdu, the VP of content at Facebook Reality Labs.
BigBox VR might be small, however, they are a mighty, nimble group of game industry vets who consistently nail the game improvement duality of craft and data-driven live service.
“We’re eager to assist BigBox VR to grow and accelerate their vision for POPULATION: ONE as a best-in-class VR social gaming experience, just as seek after future projects, with access to the resources and support of Facebook and Oculus Studios,” Verdu said in a statement on Friday.
