StarVR One Developer Program Put On Hold Until Further Notice

StarVR, maker of the next-gen StarVR One VR headset, recently had to deal with a lot of negative headlines. The joint-venture between Taiwanese tech giant Acer and Swedish Starbreeze was just launching their StarVR One Developer Program when rumors emerged that Acer actually would like to either disband or sell the company. Another blow was dealt two days ago when Starbreeze filed for reconstruction, lost their CEO and had their offices raided by the Swedish authorities.

StarVR has now pulled the emergency brakes and put their Developer Program on hold until further notice. This email was sent to developers that wanted to join the program:

“To our valued community of developers and partners,

We regret to inform you that the StarVR Developer program has been put on hold until further notice.

We believe it is the most responsible course of action to put the StarVR Developer Program on hold while our key overseas shareholder has filed for reconstructuring, and also while our company is in the process of going private, which may entail some changes to our operations.

Your interest and support for StarVR is greatly appreciated. We understand that many of you were looking forward to purchasing the StarVR One headset, and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sincerely yours,

The StarVR Team”

  2. I think everyone who does do investments can feel this actual VR roadmap is not going to work. Arcade hall, you will only sell a few, tripleA games I do see nothing on the market and the few games that are converted to VR are more the two years old.
    If this VR market would expand then it should run on a mid range system, the quality of the VRheadset should be improved, wireless and below €300,-
    Do not get me wrong inhere, dispite the whole VR quality is rubbish compaire to a good monitor I’m impressed by the Odyssey + when playing Il2, only this game is a small niche and also needs a big investment in a RTX2080ti and i7-8700 so also here it is very limited in making any profit.
    So for me this is real bad VRnews but not a surprise.
