First Contact Entertainment, the studio behind PSVR and PSVR2 shooters Firewall Zero Hour and Firewall Ultra, is shutting down. The developer was in operation for nearly eight years and specialised in VR content material, which turned the explanation for its closure.
PSVR and PSVR2’s Firewall video games earned combined opinions
PSVR’s Firewall Zero Hour earned usually constructive opinions however PSVR2’s Firewall Extremely did not exceed or match its predecessors’ reception. Nevertheless, gross sales and opinions don’t appear to be the first motive for First Contact’s closure. In an announcement published on Facebook, the corporate cited “lack of support for VR within the industry” that ultimately “took its toll.”
The assertion — which provides the closure date as “end of the year” — solely seems on First Contact’s official Fb web page on the time of this writing, and is neither up on its web site nor on its Twitter/X web page (which is presently lively).
“As a AAA VR game developer, we are just not able to justify the expense needed gouging forward,” a part of the assertion reads. “We are a team of fearless innovators willing to push new technologies to its limits. I am extremely proud of the team and grateful to our investors, our partners and of course our community of dedicated and passionate players. It’s been a wild ride, Thankyou!”
