Oculus co-publishing CCP's EVE Valkyrie as a Rift exclusive

In December, headset maker Oculus hired its head of worldwide publishing. Today, the company announced that it is co-publishing one of the most promising VR games.
Today, VR headset developer and marketer Oculus VR announced that it is co-publishing CCP's EVE Valkyrie as an Oculus Rift exclusive title. The game, which is in development at the EVE Online developer's Newcastle, England studio, has long been shown alongside the prototype Oculus Rift hardware at trade shows. The game will be an Oculus Rift launch title according to the announcement on the company's blog. No details about when "launch" might be or distribution methods for the game were mentioned. In conversation with Gamasutra, Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey called Valkyrie a "really, really good experience" on the Rift. Oculus VR booted up its publishing arm in December with the hire of former EA Partners exec David DeMartini. EVE Valkyrie, which started out as a prototype called EVE-VR, was unveiled almost a year ago at CCP's last Fanfest event in Iceland. In September last year, the company hired former EA DICE developer Owen O'Brien (Mirror's Edge) to lead the EVE Valkyrie team as executive producer.
