Facebook Acquires Ready At Dawn

The excellent Ready At Dawn is now a part of Facebook’s Oculus Studios team. We can expect to see more great VR projects from the studio who brought us The Order: 1886 and the Echo games.

Ready At Dawn, the developers of The Order: 1886, has been acquired by Facebook.

As part of the social media giant’s Oculus Studios team, Ready At Dawn will be working with VR technology.

Ready At Dawn is no stranger to VR as the studio has already produced four titles for Oculus since 2017.

The Oculus Blog had this to say about Ready At Dawn joining the team;

“Ready At Dawn is a veteran game developer with some serious chops—as well as a VR pioneer. They’ve created four titles for the Oculus Platform, including; Lone EchoEcho ArenaEcho Combat, and Lone Echo II which is currently in development.

In addition to setting the bar for narrative VR experiences, Lone Echo re-wrote the playbook for VR movement mechanics with the debut of Ready At Dawn’s signature innovative continuous locomotion system and full-body IK (inverse kinematics). The zero-g mechanic is used throughout the Echo Games franchise and lends itself well to VR beginners and competitive VR esports alike.

As part of the Oculus Studios team, Ready At Dawn will continue creating memorable, immersive, and innovative VR content for gamers around the world as an independently-operated studio. We’re thrilled to welcome them to the family”.
