Several weeks before the release of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, we have an announcement to make. Sit down (if you aren’t already), pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming and then read the following: Ankama’s going virtual!

At the beginning of March, the world heard all about new advances in virtual reality (VR) at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This month, two of the biggest contenders will see a retail release. In the face of such incredible progress in this technology, we are considering adapting our video games to this as yet unexplored territory!
But which headset to choose? The Oculus Rift, which is pretty versatile in terms of VR technology on PC? The Vive, which puts this new tech to better use by fully utilizing space and movement, but appears to be more experimental? Or maybe the PlayStation VR, which is a serious competitor on the console front? It’s hard to say right now...
Unless we opt for a fourth and more radical option...
What if we at Ankama, as is so often the case, were to commit ourselves fully to this new experience by developing our own headset, the Ankama VR? Well, right now, we feel this is the most likely solution!
We will obviously keep you updated on how this project is going, but if we decide to go ahead with the last option we mentioned, then we wouldn’t expect to release this virtual reality headset any time before summer 2019.
In the meantime, how do you feel about this? Ready for the Ankama VR?
