Population: One Will Cease Quest 1 Support in October

As of October 31st, 2022, owners of the original Quest 1 headset won’t be able to play or download the popular battle royal natively. BigBox Vr announce that in order to move the game forward, Quest 1 support was longer a viable solution and is holding the game back from “nextgen features and tech”.

If you purchased a copy of Population: One within the last 6 months and do not own a Quest 2, you will be eligible for a refund BigBox says.

Although not entirely surprising. This seems to be the beginning of the end of Quest 1 support for games. However, users will still have access to the game via Link or Airlink since Population: One is a cross-buy game. That is, if you have a PC that can play it.

While games like Resident Evil 4 VR have been released as Quest 2 exclusives, this marks the first game to completely cease support of the Quest 1 hardware post-release.

Will more developers follow in BigBox’s footsteps in the name of progress? We’ll soon find out.
