First Location-Based Virtual Reality system to reach 2 Million Player Milestone
Just shy of their two-year anniversary, the virtual reality hardware company and VR gaming & experience studio, HOLOGATE today announced they have already recorded their 2 millionth player. A steady increase of roughly 200k players each month with no signs of slowing. A highly impressive feat in a virtual reality market that has performed significantly below expert analyst projections made over the past 5 years.
As one of flagship locations for HOLOGATE, the world’s first micro-amusement park, Two Bit Circus, purchased not one, but two HOLOGATE’s since their launch in September 2018. “HOLOGATE is one of our top VR attractions,” commented Brent Bushnell, CEO of Two Bit Circus. “It’s reliable, operator friendly, always busy, and people love the experience. It’s worked so well for us we got a second one!”
In addition to Two Bit Circus, many other top entertainment venues around the world have also experienced notable success with HOLOGATE. They include Andretti´s Indoor Karting & Games, Cinergy Cinemas, Main Event, VR Park: PVRK-Dubai, Timezone, and Urban Air Trampoline & Adventure Parks.
HOLOGATE now has 250+ active locations throughout Europe, the Middle East, the Asia-Pacific region, and North and South America bringing their excusive content reach into 21 countries in over 5 continents.
Across the 250+ installations, operators are seeing an average of 1,500 plays per month. The top 21% of performers see upwards of 2,500 to 8,500 plays per month.
“This will be a big year for the platform. There are many new games being released, including some partnerships with major brands in the movie and gaming industry,” said Leif Petersen, CEO of HOLOGATE.
HOLOGATEs most anticipated game of the year is based on the upcoming ‘Angry Birds’ theatrical release. HOLOGATE partnered with Sony Pictures VRand Rovio Entertainment Corp. to release the ‘Angry Birds’ VR game alongside “The Angry Birds Movie 2” this summer.
Following the idea to change the world by creating memorable experiences through socially engaging immersive media, the team behind HOLOGATE set out to create a cutting-edge system for location-based virtual reality. The result is an award-winning turnkey vr arena that is compact, easy to run, easy to play yet difficult to master, and
