Can a c++ project be used for samsung gear VR with controller?

Hi. The docs for Samsung gear VR with controller go through a quickstart process (i think for blueprint)

I wanted to see if I could do it in c++ so I started a blank c++ project but when I got to step 2(6) which requires ticking the box “Configure the android manifest for deployment to gear VR” - this checkbox isn’t actually present.

So I’m guessing i can’t really develop for gear vr in c++.
