Alongside its VR catalog, it has worked on games including Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, and Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice.

Facebook purchased another company today in its bid to expand Oculus Studios.

The vast majority of Sanzaru's employees will be officially considered as part of the Oculus Studios team. Fb introduced right now that it has acquired Bay Space VR studio Sanzaru Games, the developer of "Asgard's Wrath", thought of by many lovers to be one of many Oculus Rift's greatest video games.

Sanzaru Games will maintain its independence, and it will continue to focus on VR experiences.

Are you disappointed to see the developer snapped up by Facebook?

Sanzaru Games, the studio behind the virtual reality action-adventure RPG Asgard's Wrath, now belongs to Facebook. Facebook did not disclose the terms of purchase, but stated that Sanzaru will only operate on paper on Facebook, regardless of its offices in the US and Canada. These games are Ripcoil, VR Sports Challenge, MARVEL Powers United VR, Asgard's Wrath.

The move serves to advance Facebook's interests in VR and VR gaming - areas its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has long taken a keen interest in.

Facebook answers the question if they plan to acquire other studios.

"We're exploring many ways to accelerate VR, and 2020 is going to be an incredible year for VR game launches and announcements", said Mike Verdu, Facebook's director of content.

While the majority of Sanzaru Games' employees will switch to Oculus Studios team, the studio will continue operating independently of the Oculus studios in both U.S. and Canada. We saw Vive come out and show off the new Cosmos, and we can expect more announcements from Oculus in the coming weeks.
