The Godot Engine is a not-for-profit free and open source game engine which aims at empowering all users in their 2D and 3D game development projects.

As fans of the Godot Engine project and their mission, we here at Facebook have been talking with the team for some time now about how we could help. It is with great excitement that we share the news that Facebook Reality Labs has provided a grant to support the Godot Engine project.

This grant will support the development of cross-platform OpenXR support, an extended input action system for VR, Vulkan rendering and optimizations on mobile, and more! It is our shared hope that this will help Godot become an even more useful and capable tool for the VR development community. This grant is being administered by the Godot Engine’s legal and fiscal sponsor Software Freedom Conservancy, a not-for-profit charity that promotes software freedom.

Please check out the announcement on the Godot Engine website for more details about this news, and be sure to check out Getting Started with Godot: The Open Source Game Engine on the Oculus Developer Blog.
