Oculus’ parent company Facebook announced plenty of exciting new titles coming to the Quest and Rift platform at this year’s annual Facebook Connect event, alongside the reveal of the company’s second-generation standalone VR headset, Oculus Quest 2, which launches next month.

The Quest platform is proving to be a success not only for Facebook but also for gaming developers and publishers. According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, over 35 games on Oculus Quest have generated more than $1 million in revenue from Quest content alone. And while Facebook has decided to make the strategic decision to shift away from Rift PC-based hardware to focus on standalone VR headsets moving forward, the company says that it will continue to support the Oculus Rift platform for PC VR experiences. Using the Oculus Link cable, people will be able to use a compatible gaming PC to play Rift platform titles on their Quest standalone headset well into the future.

Below is a list of games announced at this year’s Facebook Connect for Quest 2, including a few for the Rift platform:
