A survey of over 2,000 game developers ahead of the Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2016 in March reveals that the Oculus Rift is by far the most popular VR platform among game developers.

There were actually two questions, the first one being which VR/AR platforms the developers are currently working with. By far the majority of the game developers responded that they're not currently involved or interested in virtual reality projects. Close to 19 percent are currently working on a game for the Oculus Rift, followed by the Samsung VR headset at 7 percent, and the smartphone-based Google Cardboard with 7 percent.

The second poll queried developers' interest in VR/AR platforms for future projects and in this case the number of those not interested or involved dropped significantly. The Oculus Rift came out as the most popular VR solution, with 40 percent of those surveyed showing a preference for the Rift. Most VR platforms scored a tie, the Microsoft HoloLens, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR all received around 25 percent interest from those surveyed, only the Samsung Gear VR scored significantly worse.
