Avalanche leak suggests cloud gaming could come to Oculus Quest


What you need to know

  • A Redditor leaked to XR hardware analyst Brad Lynch that they had tested an official cloud gaming tool on the Oculus Quest 2.
  • Called Avalanche and currently in alpha testing, it would let you play PC VR games without your own PC.
  • Meta currently does not allow cloud gaming apps in the Oculus Store.
  • We’ve reached out to Meta for comment.

XR hardware analyst and frequent leaker of Oculus hardware Bradley Lynch tweeted on Thursday that someone “had access to the Cloud PC VR Streaming functionality Meta is internally testing.” That person reportedly played “a totally remote game of Asgard’s Wrath via a UK Wifi5 session” and shared proof with Lynch.

Lynch went on to say that the “quality was not very good for the user,” most likely due to the physical distance between the UK and Meta’s servers.
