While Microsoft has been very careful to point out that the VR device Hololens is not going to be a gaming first device, it appears the device will have at least some games judging by the fact that the company just filed a new patent for an apparent game called Fragments. While we don’t know exactly what this game has in store for us, it actually appears as though this might be the next step in what has been a long unfolding plan.
Dualshockers was apparently the first to notice that the patent had been filed and then the site did a little more digging. The site found a video that was actually put out almost a year ago showing people how Hololens can be used. In that video, which we’ve embedded below, there are a number of different tiles that had features such as Netflix and Skype. There is also one picture that shows the word Fragments backwards. It appears this was Fragments all along and that would mean the patent appears to be pointing towards a game that will be geared for the Hololens.
Beyond that, we know almost nothing about what this title might have in store for us. Of course, it won’t be too much longer until we get to find out. Microsoft has been planning on shedding more light on the Hololens in 2016 and as we draw ever closer to the new year. Check out the video for a bit of a sneak peek and then wait patiently.
