Cloudhead Games has a new 'flagship VR title' in the works

Cloudhead Games celebrates its tenth anniversary and looks to the future. A next-gen VR game is on the horizon.

Cloudhead Games developed early VR adventures The Gallery Episode 1 & Episode 2 (2016-2017), the finger-tracking demo Aperture Hand Lab (2019) in partnership with Valve, and the rhythm-shooter hit Pistol Whip (2019), which is still getting fresh content after nearly four years and is one of the 15 most successful premium games on Meta Quest by number of ratings.

Now the studio is announcing that it is working on a new flagship title that will bring players "into the next era of VR game-making".

"Our next VR project is a culmination of everything we've learned from our decade in VR game development," said Denny Unger, CEO and Creative Director at Cloudhead Games. "Whether you're a Pistol Whip diehard, brand new to VR, or an enthusiast, we're making something we think you—and your friends—will love. We can't wait to show you what is next for us!"

Exactly what the studio is working on and for which VR platforms isn't being revealed (yet).

New content for Pistol Whip announced

Cloudhead Games also unveiled the content roadmap for Pistol Whip into 2024, which looks like this:


  • Pistol Mix is here. The official modding tool for Pistol Whip arrived in June, bringing dozens of custom Remixed Scenes to players on Quest 2 and Steam VR.

  • Overdrive Season is ongoing. The neon-drenched fury continues with its penultimate Scene, "Majesty," available in Arcade Mode now. The Season finale arrives September 1.

  • Coming Soon: Elixir of Madness! Arriving Fall 2023 on supported platforms, Pistol Whip's next content collection is a phantasmagoria of ghastly delights featuring three new electro-swing tracks.

  • Coming early 2024: another new collection. Support for Pistol Whip continues into 2024 with another new content collection, tracked by the title's most adventurous genre yet.
