All The Oculus Quest 2 Games Confirmed Today: Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, And More

Alongside the Oculus Quest 2, Facebook revealed a lineup of games for the new VR headset during its Oculus event on September 16. Some of the games shown are expected to launch alongside the Oculus Quest 2, though this is not an extensive list of launch content.

While Oculus will no longer sell the original Quest headset, the company plans to support it for the foreseeable future. As such, all of the following games will be available for both headsets, though, of course, the Quest 2’s improved specs (including the forthcoming 90Hz refresh rate support) will take better advantage of optimized software.
