Beat Saber Meta Quest 1 Support Ends This Year

Beat Games and Oculus VR announced that Beat Saber will not be supported on the Meta Quest 1 starting on November 2, 2024, with no new updates, customer support, and other elements being cut or phased out at that point. People will still be able to use that headset with the not updated version or with Meta Quest Steam Link to play the updated PC version on Valve’s storefront.

The official FAQs offered more details about how this will work. People who own Beat Saber on the Meta Quest 1 will be able to still play it. They just won’t be able to get any updates that add free or paid DLC. If there’s a problem, people can’t get support for it. They also won’t be able to see their scores on leaderboards or play with others. 

It will, however, be possible to transfer progress and the game to other Meta Quest headsets like the 2, 3, or Pro, for example. There are cloud save backups, and this is a cross-play title tied to someone’s account. So the copy of Beat Saber and its DLC a Meta Quest 1 player owns will also work on the Meta Quest 2, 3, Pro, or Rift devices. The support page also offered details on how to transfer data from a Meta Quest 1 to a PC Steam copy. 

The developer explained support is ending so it can focus on the game on other devices. It didn’t note if PlayStation owners could expect something like this to eventually happen with the PS VR and PS VR2. 

Beat Saber is available for the Meta Quest 1, 2, 3, and Pro, the PS VR and PS VR2, and PC headsets via Steam. Meta Quest 1 support ends on November 2, 2024.
