Starbreeze has formed the Project StarVR, where InfinitEye’s hardware expertise and capabilities are combined with Starbreeze game and entertainment software development skills. The project places Starbreeze in a unique position to develop VR experiences with an integrated vision. By committing to be a fully integrated party supporting the Steam OpenVR framework within Starbreeze proprietary game and entertainment industry engine Valhalla, Starbreeze aspires to become one of the first VR publishers parallel to being the go-to catalyst for publishing titles on the Steam platform.
With the newly established publishing arm, Starbreeze is also launching a number of entertainment industry content collaborations. Early content partners include Lionsgate, Skybound, 505 Games, Grab and WeVR.
Starbreeze will showcase its StarVR HMD at the trade show E3 in Los Angeles on June 16-18.
