The Wall Street Journal is reporting from its sources that "people familiar with the project" confirmed that Microsoft is developing a VR headset, and that the company has already filed a patent for the device. The technology has reportedly been developed side-by-side with another project called "Fortaleza," something that translates to "fortress" in Portuguese.

 

The two projects are expected to provide users with a "suite of experiences unique to Microsoft's Xbox products."
