Several AAA VR games are expected to be released this year, and Bulletstorm VR was slated to be one of them. Unfortunately, the game won’t be available this year.
Bulletstorm VR was unveiled at Meta’s Gaming Showcase back in June, alongside other AAA VR games like Asgard’s Wrath 2 and the recently released Assassin’s Creed: Nexus. Initially scheduled for release on December 14th this year, the studio behind the game had to alter their plans.
Bulletstorm VR has experienced a slight delay, pushing the release date to January 18th. Here is the notice from the game studio:

The original Bulletstorm was launched in 2011 and continues to be a highly praised title – after a decade, many fans are still anticipating the sequel of the game. This 7-hour fast-paced shooter would be a perfect suit for a VR experience, and although we didn’t see any sequel announcement, we’ve received something even more exciting – a VR port.
The narrative of Bulletstorm VR happens in the distant future on an abandoned resort planet, throwing players into the shoes of Grayson Hunt, a former member of the elite assassin group Dead Echo. Stranded in this abandoned world due to his exile, Grayson faces a critical decision: to either locate his team and secure his escape from the planet or confront the commander, the person responsible for the betrayal.
Bulletstorm VR Release Date and Price
The game is scheduled for release on January 18, 2024, available for PCVR, PSVR2, and Meta Quest platforms, priced at $40. Preorders are open on the Meta Quest Store, offering a 10% discount, effectively bringing the cost down to $35. While this may not be a huge difference, it can certainly be a nice bonus for dedicated fans who were already planning to purchase the game.
Bulletstorm VR’s release seems to align with the timeframe of Meta’s first-party VR AAA Game – Asgard’s Wrath 2, which is also available for preorders at a higher price point of $60. Furthermore, There are much more thrilling VR game offerings coming in recent months, whether they come in the form of ports or completely original titles. Even Rockstar is speculated to have plans in the works for a VR release, most likely a GTA game release, particularly given Mark Zuckerberg’s hint about GTA San Andreas coming to Quest 2.
