A popular Hollywood actress will be part of a new pirate franchise that will also get a VR spin-off.

American Hollywood actress Lucy Liu, known from Kill Bill, Charlie's Angels, Shazam! Fury of the Gods or Elementary, will soon be heard in a VR game. The Pirate Queen: A Forgotten Legend will be part of an expansive, multi-media franchise.

Liu will voice the main character and serve as executive producer. In addition to the VR spin-off, The Pirate Queen will also be released as a podcast, graphic novel and TV series.

Become the Pirate Queen of Virtual Reality

“The Pirate Queen is the forgotten story of Cheng Shih, a woman in 19th-century China who became one of the most powerful pirates in history,” describes production studio Singer Studios.

After the sudden death of the leader of her fleet, the widow Cheng Shih fights for her status and her life. Players take on the role of Cheng from a first-person perspective, solving puzzles and outwitting enemies to eventually rise to the rank of pirate queen.


Singer Studios is producing The Pirate Queen franchise together with Seesaw Films, a Chinese film studio. A first teaser trailer shows impressions of sneaking through a pirate ship as Cheng Shih.

Pirate adventure coming to SteamVR & Meta Quest

The Pirate Queen: A Forgotten Legend has been announced for SteamVR and Meta Quest 2 for early 2024. This means that the VR game will also be playable on Meta Quest 3, which will be released later this year.

The successor to the Quest 2 mobile VR headset is fully backwards compatible and was surprisingly announced via an Instagram post on Mark Zuckerberg's channel during the Meta Gaming Showcase 2023.
