Croteam: “Oculus tried to buy Serious Sam VR and offered us a shitton money for exclusivity, we refused”

It appears that Oculus has been trying lately to buy a lot of games and release them exclusively for the Oculus Rift. As it was revealed during E3 2016, Superhot, Giant Cop and Killing Floor will be coming exclusively to the Oculus Rift. However, another title that was showcased, Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, won’t be exclusive to the Oculus Rift, despite the attempts of Oculus to buy it.

As Croteam’s Eagleshadow stated:

“They tried to buy Serious Sam VR as well. It wasn’t easy, but we turned down a shitton of money, as we believe that truly good games will sell by themselves and make profit in the long run regardless. And also because we hate exclusives as much as you do.

Dat shitton of money tho…”

And this shows you what has been happening in the background regarding the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. We get it, Oculus is trying to secure some games for the Oculus Rift in order to make it looks “better” than the HTC Vive. However this is one of the most anti-consumer attempts we can think of, especially when we are talking abour VR; a tech that is still in its infant stages.
