While Asgard's Wrath is the most recent title Sanzaru Games has released its partnership with Oculus Studios stretches back to 2016 and covers four videogames in total; Ripcoil, VR Sports Challenge and MARVEL Powers United VR.

Following Facebook's acquisition of Beat Games in November, the Sanzaru Games purchase showcases Facebook's continued interest in propping up VR game studios and aligning them around their interests while allowing them to operate independently.

Sanzaru Games, the California-based development team, has been acquired by Facebook and will join Oculus Studios to "pursue a future of rich, immersive, and original VR game content".

A studio's culture is a crucial part of its success, and that's clearly been true for Sanzaru.

For the past few days, there was a buzz in the news media that Anushka Shetty is going to be a bride of a cricketer. Currently, Anushka is pretty busy with her project named " Nishabdam ", in which, she will be taking the lead role.

Sanzaru Games will continue to operate as an independent studio out of their current offices in the USA and Canada, but with the full support of Facebook and, of course, the Oculus Studios team.

Sanzaru Games has a history of picking up work for other publishers.

Sanzaru Games will maintain its own independence, and it will continue to focus on VR experiences, however, no future projects have been announced at this time. This essentially means that Sony will have to find another developer if it wants to continue the much-loved platforming franchise.
