New VR Games & Releases June 2023: PSVR 2, Quest 2 & More

New VR Games June 2023

Looking for new VR games arriving in June 2023? We’ve got the full rundown.

May 2023 was an undeniably busy month for VR, offering a little something for everyone. Between Propagation: Paradise Hotel, Another Fisherman's Tale, Walkabout Mini Golf, Humanity, Rogue Ascent, Red Matter 2, Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue, Crimen - Mercenary Tales and Everslaught Invasion, we covered a lot through reviews.

That's before we get into the rest. On PSVR 2, Organ Quarter, Transformers Beyond Reality and PokerStars VR ports all launched less than 24 hours apart. Windlands officially appeared on Quest following a previous App Lab release, while Firmament, X8, Paranormal Hunter, Cosmodread, Yupitergrad 2: The Lost Station and Beat Saber on PSVR 2 rounded out May. Needless to say, it was a busy month and June's not looking any different.

With the Meta Gaming Showcase on June 1 and our own Upload VR Summer 2023 Showcase following later on, keep this page bookmarked for further updates. For now, here’s all the major upcoming VR games arriving on Meta Quest 2, PC VR, PSVR 2, Pico 4 and more in June 2023.

The first VR game from Team 17, Killer Frequency sees players embody a local radio host in 1980s America, helping a small town's citizens avoid a masked killer while keeping the radio alive.
