The letter of intent will form the basis for on-going discussions regarding a definitive joint venture agreement, subject to Starbreeze and Acer board approval.
“Since our launch in June 2015, we have had an amazing start with StarVR,” says Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson Klint. “By partnering with Acer we shift gears yet again to firmly position us as the leader in top-end VR experiences. Acer is an excellent, experienced and prominent hardware partner that will accelerate us in realizing and producing a high-definition, high-fidelity VR headset.”
Starbreeze entered the VR-hardware space last year when the developer acquired French Infinite Eye and launched the StarVR at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June 2015. And at this year’s Cannes film festival, Starbreeze premiered its first cinematic VR experience Cockatoo Spritz directed by Stephane Barbato.

“Starbreeze and Acer share the same goal of delivering best-in-class VR applications,” says Acer corporate president and CEO Jason Chen, “and we look forward to unlocking new VR possibilities together with this partnership.”
