Hologate hits 2-million player milestone
Achieving an unprecedented milestone, the virtual reality hardware company and VR gaming & experience studio, Hologate announced that it has already recorded its two millionth player.
Hologate reported a steady increase of roughly 200k players each month with no signs of slowing, just shy of the company’s two-year anniversary. 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 the 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 more than 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 five 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 3,500 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.
Hologate’s most anticipated game of the year is based on the upcoming ‘Angry Birds’ theatrical release. Hologate partnered with Sony Pictures VR and Rovio Entertainment Corp. to release the ‘Angry Birds’ VR game alongside “The Angry Birds Movie 2” this summer.
