Oculus Rift overtakes HTC Vive as most popular VR platform for developers

Developers are currently working more projects forOculus Rift VR headset than HTC Vive.

That’s according to the fourth annual AR and VR innovation report released by the XRDC event, which claims that 29 per cent of virtual reality projects currently in development were for Oculus’ Rift headsets. That places the Facebook-owned headset just ahead of HTC’s Vive tech, for which 24 per cent of VR titles are being made for. The report also claims that the 24 per cent of virtual reality games are being built for Oculus’ recently-released wireless Quest headset.

HTC Vive has been the most popular VR tech for developers for the last three years XRDC has been conducting this research.

On top of these results, 30 per cent of respondents will be developing their next project for Oculus Rift. While 28 per cent is focusing on Oculus Quest and 24 per cent will be developing titles for HTC Vive.

Oculus’ newest VR platform has made an impressive start; the Oculus Quest is already within the Top Three most popular VR platforms for developers.

More than 900 developers responded to XRDC’s survey.

"This is a big deal: the HTC Vive has been the most popular platform among devs surveyed for the Innovation Report for three years running, but this year it seems like Oculus has managed to recapture some creators' interest," said XRDC in its report.
