Horizon Worlds to expand beyond Quest 2 with web, mobile, and console ports



What you need to know

  • Meta’s CTO referenced an upcoming Horizon Worlds web version while defending the app’s high fees on Twitter.
  • Earlier this week, The Verge reported Meta would bring HW to mobile in 2022 and was planning console ports.
  • Horizon Worlds recently enabled in-world monetization but attracted controversy this week for the huge cut of profits taken by Meta.
  • An Apple spokesperson accused the company of “hypocrisy” for its high creator fees.

Meta CTO Andrew Bosworth shared on Twitter that popular VR social app Horizon Worlds would receive a “web version.” While Horizon Worlds has grown 10 times in popularity up to 300,000 monthly users since its public launch, a non-VR web version could greatly increase its reach. 

As exhibit A, Rec Room (which has VR and non-VR versions) grew from 1 million monthly users in January to 3 million in April, many of whom don’t own VR headsets.
