Fast Travel Games announced today Cities: VR, a virtual reality take on the hit city-building game Cities: Skylines. Cities: VR will launch in Spring 2022 for Meta Quest 2 (or Oculus Quest 2, whatever it’ll be called by then).
Cities: Skylines debuted in 2015 for PC. It became a hit as SimCity fans, turned off by that franchise’s latest release, flocked to the simulation game. It later had console ports on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
“The city-building genre has huge potential in the VR market, and we couldn’t wait to work on this IP,” notes Fast Travel Games creative director Erik Odeldahl, “We’ve spent a ton of time, research, and energy to translate Cities: Skylines to VR in a way that is both approachable for new players and a new challenge for Cities veterans.”
Fast Travel is saying that Cities: VR will be a great entry point in the series while also offering something new and compelling for fans of Cities: Skylines.
