Video game developer PlaySide Studios (ASX:PLY) signed a game development agreement with Meta to create a mixed reality interactive software product that can be played on Quest’s virtual reality suite of devices.
“This deal represents the next evolution of our work at the studio as we leverage our capabilities to create and develop exciting games under a revenue-sharing agreement with a leading global technology company,” said CEO Gerry Sakkas.
“Meta is bringing virtual reality and mixed reality into the mainstream with its Quest suite, and we’re excited about the opportunity to demonstrate our domain expertise with this game.”
PlaySide receives payments for game development at agreed upon milestones, as well as a portion of the game’s net revenue in perpetuity.
Meta’s revenue has been declining for the past few quarters — it wiped about $90 billion off its market cap in the September quarter — so it will be interesting to see if gaming revenue is affected.
Work on the title is expected to begin in the current fiscal year.
