Maybe CCP didn't have much luck because their games were either low quality (Gunjack - buggy, ugly, not fun) or pay-to-pay trash (Valkyrie, $60 game, MP only, w/ more or less required micro transactions for each match you want to play - yes, they expected players to pay *per match* after shelling out full price for a glorified tech demo - oh and usually those matches are full of bots... why can't we have a single player mode?).
Not even to get into all the misleading promises around EVE Valkyrie (like integrating with EVE Online... or a single-player campaign, which each sold a bunch of copies for them - then they dropped those plans immediately and silently after launch in exchange for ship hats that players could rent).
If I had paid for either of those games they would have been the quickest refund in my life - and I didn't even bother to refund the horrendous John Wick VR game.
This says more about CCP than VR, IMHO. They made seriously (and obviously) dumb decisions and seemed to give zero fucks about the people who bought their VR games.
It's a fucking shame because the actual game play in Valkyrie was/is *awesome*. They fucked up the meta game so bad, and it was obvious from day 1, and CCP acted like their dicks were so big it didn't matter and we (the players) needed to just learn to fuckin' deal. Well we did, we didn't buy your stupid game and it brings me great joy to see them whining about it now cause they're just reaping what they sowed.
