In December, First Contact Entertainment ceased operations after eight years due to a lack of support for virtual reality in the industry.

In a recent restructuring, Sony laid off approximately 900 developers, impacting its VR division and leading to the closure of the PlayStation London studio. This studio was responsible for creating PSVR games such as PlayStation VR Worlds and Blood & Truth.
