However, it may be easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of games to choose from, so we've collected some of the biggest unreleased Oculus Quest 2 games slated to release for the platform in the coming months.

The Twilight Zone VR

Publisher Fun Train and developer Pocket Money Games are getting ready to send players through to the Twilight Zone, this time in VR. The game was recently announced and will be an adaptation of the legendary television series. Judging by the trailer, players will be a modern take on the iconic program, with players transported into the Twilight Zone via their virtual reality devices and getting to experience three different, original tales. 

While it's unknown exactly what the new stories will entail, players can likely expect some form of horror, mystery, and thriller genres all mixing together in true Twilight Zone fashion.

Among Us VR

The hit phenomenon is finally making its way to VR. Among Us, the famous whodunit social deduction game, was recently shown off during Meta's 2022 Games Showcase and will be hitting the ecosystem soon.

NFL Pro Era

Founded and run by former NFL athletes, StatusPRO promises NFL Pro Era will use "real-time NFL game data and StatusPRO's athlete-led technology" to create an authentic quarterback experience, which will most likely include doing things like avoiding pass rushes, reading defenses, and more. 

It will also recreate real QB moments like running through the tunnel or completing practice drills.

Release date: Fall 2022

Espire 2

Like the original, Espire 2 lets you use your mic to intimidate soldiers with orders like "empty your pockets." 

Unlike the original, Espire 2 has a unique co-op campaign that takes place between the first and second game, as well as a stealth AI system that's been "rebuilt from the ground up."

What the Bat?

What the Bat? 

The developers of slapstick golf-parody game WHAT THE GOLF? have brought a similar absurd charm to its first VR title, which has a similar vibe to Vacation Simulator mixed with WarioWare's manic, random energy — only with purposefully worse controls. You have to complete various mini-game tasks with realistic physics, only your hands are tiny bats that aren't exactly built for dextrous jobs.

Release date: TBD 2022 

Gambit!

Gambit! 

Gambit was first teased as a PC VR title two years ago but has now resurfaced as a Quest 2 title with an actual release date, including crazy masked characters, foul language, and lots and lots of shooting.

In many ways, it seems to channel Payday’s energy while being a game properly built for the VR era. Throughout the 20+ hour campaign, you’ll join friends through a three-chapter-long story that includes robbing trains, grand adventures, gun fights, and the single goal of ‘get rich or die trying.’ Sounds like a blast.

Release date: TBD 2022 

Next Player Please

Next Player Please 

Next Player Please sees players sitting around a physical table passing the headset to one another to complete minigames with just their hands. The trick here — at least based on the trailer — is that the VR headset doesn’t have a strap and players don’t use controllers.

Those two key points make it easy to pass the headset along to others quickly, as what appear to be Wario Ware-style minigames will likely be faster-paced than other VR titles. 

Release date: TBD 2022 

Bonelab

Boneworks is a fantastic action puzzle shooter on the Oculus Rift that is known best for its realistic physics engine. Now, the game is finally making its way to mobile VR hardware, with a release set for the Quest 2 sometime later this year. 

Release date: TBD 2022

Bonelab VR 

Escape fate by trying to escape an underground research facility, and taking down enemies along the way.

Ghostbusters VR

Perhaps the single biggest announcement during the 2022 Meta Games Showcase, Ghostbusters VR takes the iconic film franchise and puts it into the world of virtual reality. The game tasks players with running a new Ghostbusters HQ in San Francisco, all while taking down and capturing various ghosts in the process. 

Ghostbusters VR supports up to four-player co-op, and seems to be sticking pretty close to the spirit of the original films, although not too much else is known about the game at this time. 

Release date: TBD 2022

Ultimechs

The combination of mechs and sports has been done before in virtual reality, but Resolution Games is looking to perfect the crossover in Ultimechs. With this title, players will shoot their mech's fists at metal balls in the hopes of guiding it into an opponent's goal. 

Aside from piloting a mech, players will find themselves controlling the trajectory of the rocket fist after it has been fired, lending a unique perspective to the point where an appendage comes into contact with a ball in the world of sports.

Release date: TBD 2022

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom is inspired by the award-winning gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy as gang leader Tommy Shelby. The VR experience will be produced by digital entertainment studio Maze Theory, which has previously made video games based on the Doctor Who franchise.

Described as "an authentic, embodied experience set in an atmospheric 1920s England," the VR title will let players choose their own path in various moments of "subversion, wish fulfillment, narrative intrigue, and gripping set pieces." Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom will also star Cillian Murphy and Paul Anderson, and allow players to enter the world of the hit show.

Release date: TBD 2022

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas VR

While not too much is known about the title, it is known that Video Games Deluxe, the same studio behind the LA Noire: The VR Case Files port, would be working on the San Andreas title, with a release date set for sometime in 2022.

Release date: TBD 2022

Not too much is known about Splinter Cell's venture into VR, but Ubisoft did claim that it will be launching both a Splinter Cell title and Assassin's Creed game exclusively on Oculus VR devices sometime in the future. The games will be co-developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Reflections.

Release date: TBA

Assassin's Creed VR

Similar to the Splinter Cell VR title, nearly nothing is known about the Assassin's Creed VR game. Co-developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Reflections, this title will likely continue the ongoing lore that Ubisoft has established with Assassin's Creed, although it's unknown what aspect of Assassin's Creed players will get to experience.

Release date: TBA

Which VR game are you looking forward to playing?

Though releases have slowed down with the pandemic, there are still several exciting games for the Oculus Quest 2 in our future, like Ghostbusters VR and NFL Pro Era, just to name a few. While other titles such as the popular Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Assassin's Creed don't have concrete release dates yet, we'll be sure to update this post when they do.

Even if the game you're waiting on doesn't have a set release date yet, there are still many other great Oculus Quest 2 games to check out. The recently-released Cities: VR, for example, is an MMO that is already seeing lots of success.
