Beat Saber surpasses $100 million in revenue on the Oculus Quest platform

Beat Saber remains the most profitable Quest title, with others not far behind.

What you need to know

  • Beat Saber is the first game to hit $100 million in revenue from the Quest platform alone.
  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has amassed $50 million in revenue across all VR platforms.
  • Several other developers have reported record sales, citing huge growth in the Quest player base, in particular.

At Facebook Connect 2021, the company's annual AR and VR conference, Facebook announced that Beat Saber had amassed over $100 million in revenue on the Oculus Quest platform alone. Earlier this year, we saw that only six games had surpassed $10 million in revenue, and the quick milestone of $100 million for one of the best Quest 2 games shows just how much the market has grown in 2021 alone.

While Beat Saber has been out for well over four years on the PC, it took a while to make its way to other VR platforms like the Oculus Quest 2. Over the years, Beat Saber has become synonymous with the term VR and has become rather a cultural phenomenon, and now we know just how big the game has really grown.

On a similar front, Skydance Interactive also announced that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has amassed over $50 in revenue across all three platforms that it's available on — that's PC, PSVR, and Oculus Quest.

Since its launch, the Oculus Quest 2 has become the defacto place for gamers to get a fantastic experience without having to make much of an investment. Likewise, the influx of customers has been extremely lucrative for developers, who have been largely withering on the vine for years while VR slowly grew.

Other developers of note who have reported record sales lately include BigBox VR of Population: One fame and Downpour Interactive of Onward fame — both studios that Facebook has since acquired to join its Oculus Studios first-party brand.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
