Hi Mirda,

I don't have any insight into why Treehouse does or does not produce a course. If I were to guess, however, it would be because Treehouse's focus is on core programming skills and, to a lesser extent, the development of interactive web applications.

Game Development covers many more activities than programming, and on the programming side is a niche programming topic. Virtual Reality is a niche within that niche, that again has many more considerations than programming for a project to be successful.

That said, the C# tracks (beginner and intermediate) on Treehouse teach solid C# fundamentals that will make learning (for example) programming in Unity a lot easier. If this is an area of interest for you I recommend looking at these tracks and the freely available Unity documentation, which will allow you to take your C# fundamentals into this niche.

Cheers,

Eric
