3d software and software developer Logitech has signed a deal with Chinese gaming firm Cura to sell its own games to Chinese consumers.
Logitech said on Wednesday that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Cura, which manufactures the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
It said Cura had secured licensing rights for its game technology, and Logitech would make its own game technology available to Cura customers.
Cura is China’s largest VR developer, and its titles include a number of games for mobile devices and PCs.
The move comes as the company has been embroiled in an ongoing antitrust investigation over the way it distributes virtual-reality games to its customers.
Cura, whose chief executive, Xu Xiang, was recently fired, is also under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for allegedly failing to disclose its ties to the Chinese government and its relationship with state-owned entities.
Xu Xiang, who previously served as the head of Cura’s gaming division, is now the head for its China operations, according to a statement.
Logitech did not provide a reason for the agreement.
This is the first time a major video game manufacturer has signed such an agreement with a Chinese video game company.
Cura, a Beijing-based gaming firm, is owned by Chinese technology company CNOOC.
