Meta, the parent company of the popular virtual reality headset Quest 2, per the new leaks may soon be launching a subscription service for its users. Meta Quest Pass would provide users with a variety of benefits that are currently missing from the Quest 2 console.
This information was leaked by Twitter user Shiny Quagsire, who discovered that the Quest pass service is in development thanks to a hidden page on the Meta Quest app. Although the page seems to have since been taken down, the user was able to capture a screenshot and share it with others. The page introduces users to the concept of the game pass and tells them what to expect from it.
According to leaks regarding the alleged Meta Quest Pass, subscribers will be able to pick up to two new apps or games each month and retain them as long as they continue to pay for the service. The leaked information suggests that the service would function similarly to Sony’s PlayStation Plus and Microsoft’s Xbox Live, providing users with a low-cost way to stay engaged with the platform while also offering access to exclusive content.
For Quest 2 players who have long asked for a subscription service, this would be a significant improvement. While a VR subscription service is a typical feature for gaming consoles, it is still absent from VR headsets. Meta would be more in step with the trend of subscription services in the gaming industry if they made this move.
The Quest 2 platform would benefit from the inclusion of this new service since it would provide customers with a more affordable option to access the content. Also, it would entice new users to join the service, which would boost engagement and revenue for Meta. Although the business has not yet made an official statement, the leaked information suggests that Meta may be thinking to announce its release very soon.
