Acer and Starbreeze have today announced a new partnership to launch their own virtual reality headset.
Called StarVR, it is the result of the two looking to work together on the headset’s design, manufacturing, promotion and marketing, however, as of yet, they have not revealed any specifications for the StarVR headset.
Bo Andersson Klint, Starbreeze CEO explained more:
Since our launch in June 2015, we have had an amazing start with StarVR. By partnering with Acer we shift gears yet again to firmly position us as the leader in top-end VR experiences. Acer is an excellent, experienced and prominent hardware partner that will accelerate us in realizing and producing a high-definition, high-fidelity VR headset. We’ve been working with a clear roadmap for our VR strategy from day one, and are now about to realize one of the first major collaborations we set out to achieve. The future for StarVR is now set and extremely exciting.
Jason Chen, Acer Corporate President and CEO also added:
Acer is thrilled to join forces with Starbreeze in bringing the StarVR head-mounted display to the market. We are devoting R&D resources across multiple aspects of the VR ecosystem for a coherent and high-quality experience, while just last month Acer announced powerful desktops and notebooks fully-ready for StarVR. Starbreeze and Acer share the same goal of delivering best-in-class VR applications, and we look forward to unlocking new VR possibilities together with this partnership.
As soon more details, specifications and launch dates are announced we will let you know.
