So both games were meant to launch in 2018. Does anyone know what the delays are? COuld it be that both games are being adapted for the Quest and will launch alongside? Or have they been pushed back to support the Rift S release?

I always thought they were going to be released in 2019.

Stormland was originally described with a launch date in 2019 - I don't think I ever heard about a release date in 2018:

"Stormland is due out in 2019, and Oculus is billing it as the largest and deepest game it’s funded for the Rift platform to date."
https://www.theverge.com/2018/6/7/17434956/oculus-rift-stormland-announced-insomniac-games-vr (article fron June 2018).

Defector has also been described as launching in 2019:

"Defector is slated to release exclusively for Oculus Rift in 2019."

I don't think anything happened to Stormland and Defector 😉

"Originally, Twisted Pixel had stated at late 2018 release for Defector. That’s no longer the case with a 2019 now listed, continuing to add to what could be a very interesting year for Oculus Rift owners with the likes of Stormland also due next year."

Hmm I swear I saw 2018 for Stormland way back ... oh well .. Just cant wait for those titles.

If you happen to be going to PAX South coming up, I hear we're going to have both games available for hands-on demos, not to mention that sweet, sweet Oculus pin you can get.

God some part of me hopes that Atmos and Kevin will also be there just to hear about the incident when other media outlets report the threeway confrontation......
That or yall will just get drunk and try to solve all of the worlds issues before you pass out.
