Adrift is now an Oculus Rift launch title, delayed to 2016

Developer Three One Zero's space survival adventure game Adrift is now an Oculus Rift launch title, publisher 505 Games announced today. The game will hit PC "day and date" with the launch of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, which is slated to be released sometime during the first quarter of 2016.

That means a delay for Adrift, which was previously announced for release this month for PlayStation 4, Windows PC through Steam and Xbox One. A representative for 505 Games said the console versions of Adrift are coming in 2016, but a new release window for those platforms was not announced.

505 Games said in an announcement that Adrift was "hand-selected" by Oculus as "as a premier launch title" for the new VR platform.

Adrift tells the story of an astronaut who wakes up floating in space among the debris of a destroyed space station. With no memory of the catastrophic event, the astronaut must explore the station in an attempt to survive, piece together what happened and ultimately return to Earth.
