An update to a Steam database entry may have leaked a possible release date for Among Us VR, ahead of its scheduled appearance at the upcoming Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, but take it with a big pinch of salt. salt for now.
SteamDB, a site that tracks changes to Steam store database entries, showed two recent changes to a previously unnamed store app entry. The first is a title update – Among Us VR – and the second is an accompanying November 10 release date, which the site itself acknowledges may be incorrect. The date could still be a placeholder and change later, or it could be the actual release date for Steam and other platforms, like Quest.
Either way, it’s definitely a possible date for Among Us VR – it would be a holiday launch, just a few weeks before Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Now might be the perfect time for such a major release for younger audiences, who will likely be getting headphones as freebies over the holidays.
It’s possible that the Steam store listing is in the works ahead of a store page launching next week, after we get more information about VR Among Us during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase. While the showcase itself is Quest-focused, Among Us VR has already been confirmed for several other platforms as well, including PC VR and PSVR.
The port is being handled through a collaboration between original developers Innersloth, Robot Teddy, and famed VR studio Schell Games, who were behind the I Expect You To Die and Until You Fall series. It will be a full 3D conversion of the flat screen game that has exploded during the pandemic. You can see the trailer and read more details here.
Keep an eye out for more details about the game, and potentially its release date, during next week’s Meta Quest games showcase.
