Indie and indie-leaning games have dominated VR thus far; Facebook's apparent effort to acquire and secure exclusivity deals appears to be an attempt to ramp up its own VR growth with well known properties.
Part of this strategy involves working with big video game developers on well-known IPs. One of these sources reportedly revealed that the company has already signed deals for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed in VR. If that is true then we should expect to be seeing some sort of major VR title soon. This is lower than the 33% reported a year ago. Zuck himself is overseeing a $1 billion investment to bring popular titles to the Quest headset and VR platform, which many established studios have ignored.
Apparently, the Splinter Cell series has a new chance to return to the market: as a title for the Oculus viewers on Facebook. Oculus' former head of content, Jason Rubin, is leading this initiative but no game studios have been named as possible targets for Facebook.

Facebook is one of the biggest social media platforms in the world, and it's also been moving into gaming in recent years. However, the same report indicates that the new Oculus Quest headset - which is wireless and works on its own without the need for a separate PC or console - has blown past Oculus' sales projections since launching in May.
