EA, Ubisoft, Warner Bros and CCP all making games for Google Daydream VR

Some of the biggest mobile and VR developers are already gearing up to release titles for Google's new Daydream View VR device.

As mentioned in the reveal, Warner Bros will be releasing a title based on the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie.

EVE developer CCP will also be bringing a sequel to its Gear VR title EVE: Gunjack to Google's platform at launch.

A VR adaptation of Ubisoft and Future Games of London's Hungry Shark series is also coming to Daydream, as well as a VR edition of EA's mobile title Need for Speed: No Limits.

LEGO will also be bringing its brand to the platform with a game based on its latest line of toys, Lego BrickHeadz.

Smaller players

On the indie side, Mike Bithell Games has developed a brand new game for Daydream, EarthShape, which features UK television host Sue Perkins as its narrator.

EarthShape is the latest game from Thomas Was Alone and Volume developer Mike Bithell.

Party game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes from Steel Crate Games will also be making the leap, having appeared on several other platforms and VR devices before.

Resolution Games has also announced a Daydream title, Wonderglade, which will be a collection of mini-games centred around a carnival theme.

A deeper insight

Resolution Games will be a particularly interesting developer in the early days of Daydream, especially in terms of what it can reveal about sales and download data.

When it launched its Gear VR title Bait!, it was one of very few developers that openly talked about download numbers for its game.

50 companies are expected to bring apps and games to Daydream by the end of the year. You can see a full list of the titles already announced on the Google Daydream website.
