Meta has announced the acquisition of three game development studios, including the teams behind Iron Man VR and Resident Evil 4 VR.

Coinciding with a Meta Connect 2022 livestream on Monday, the company said it has purchased Camouflaj, Armature Studio and Twisted Pixel.

Camouflaj is a Seattle-based studio founded by former Metal Gear Solid producer and Halo creative director Ryan Payton. It previously developed Republique and Iron Man VR.

Iron Man VR was released for PlayStation VR in July 2020 and will be available for Quest 2 on November 3, 2022.

Founded by key members of the Metroid Prime series, Texas-based Armature is the studio most recently behind Resident Evil 4 VR, Where the Heart Leads and Ark: Genesis Part 1.

It has also worked on the Metal Gear Solid, Batman: Arkham, Injustice and Borderlands series, as well as Fortnite.

Twisted Metal is the Texas-based studio behind games including The Maw, ‘Splosion Man, Wilson’s Heart and Path of the Warrior.

“It’ll be a while before we can reveal what they’re working on, but we’re excited to continue working with and supporting these developers as they bring ambitious and forward-thinking games to VR,” Meta said of the three acquired studios.

During Monday’s event, Microsoft also announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is coming to Meta Quest.

“When Xbox Cloud Gaming launches on the Meta Quest Store, you’ll be able to hook up an Xbox controller to your headset and play console games from the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library on a massive 2D screen, like having a private movie theater available at all times,” Meta said.
