After some new VR games in November 2023? We’re once again rounding up our latest monthly highlights.
It’s hard to understate just how busy October was for VR gaming and following the Quest 3 release, we counted nearly 50 Quest 3 launch games. Those were mostly upgrades for existing games that often patched in mixed reality support, but many new experiences like Dungeons of Eternity, Genotype, Samba De Amigo: Virtual Party, The 7th Guest and Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord joined them.
November doesn’t feature any major VR hardware releases but that doesn’t make this month any quieter. Between releases from Ubisoft, nDreams and more, there are plenty of big games are coming. As always, keep this page bookmarked and we’ll keep the list updated across the month as we receive further release date confirmations.
