Fortnite VR datamine uncovers support for Oculus Quest 2

Ahead of the next season of Fortnite, dataminers think they’ve found evidence of the game getting VR support on Oculus headsets.

Normally, Fortnite datamines leak upcoming events, skins, and other related cosmetics. However, the community’s latest efforts may have unearthed evidence of the battle royale receiving VR support.

As part of the most recent update for the game, Epic Games has apparently added ‘stuff related to Oculus.’

No specifics have been shared, but it seems to cover both the Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2 VR headsets. Or Meta Quest as they insist on being called now.

Whether this will lead to a VR option or an entirely separate Fortnite VR game is anyone’s guess. It’s also unclear if this will pave the way for the game to receive support with PlayStation’s own VR headsets.

At first, this sounds unlikely considering Fortnite can only be played in third person, but there have also been rumours of a first person mode being added in the future.

In fact, dataminer HYPEX, a frequent and often reliable source of Fornite leaks (including the VR one), claimed last month that a first person mode is in the works and could be added as part of the next season of content, which is expected to kick off in September.

Fortnite is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
