San Francisco. Meta (formerly Facebook) has announced the closure of three virtual reality (VR) games – Dead & Buried, Dead & Buried Too and Bogo – without providing any explanation to users.

As reported by The Verge, the tech giant sent an email to existing game owners, informing them that support for the three games will be discontinued on March 15, 2024.

“We are contacting you to let you know that Dead and Buried will no longer be supported as of Friday, March 15, 2024,” reads a message sent to game owners.

It says, “You can continue hunting ghosts and other creatures in Dead & Buried on your Rift, Rift S, or Quest devices (via link) until 11:59 PM ET on that date.”

Dead and Buried, released in 2016, was one of the first multiplayer VR shooters to experiment with room-scale gameplay, including co-op, PvP, and single-player modes.

Dead and Buried Too was released in May 2019 by Meta’s internal game development studio Oculus Studios as a launch title for the original Oculus Quest.

Bogo, a free Oculus Quest launch title released in 2019, lets users raise and care for a virtual pet.

Meanwhile, Meta has announced it’s bringing its social VR app Horizon Worlds to web and mobile in early access for some users.

The company said it has launched its first Meta Horizon world in early access on mobile and web, with more experiences to come.

“For starters, a small number of people can now access Super Rumble through the Meta Quest app on Android, with iOS rolling out in the coming weeks. Early access is also available on on any web browser, the company said in a statement.
