Your mind could be sore from The Witness‘ puzzles however you will not have to fret about movement illness from enjoying it in one other format in your PlayStation four. We have confirmed with developer Jonathan Blow that the beautiful mind-bender will not be making its option to PlayStation VR; there are not any plans for it “right now.” The sport was merely in improvement for much too lengthy (probably even earlier than Sony had a working Undertaking Morpheus prototype) and Blow has stated that to help Sony’s VR headset, the sport would needed to have been designed for it from the outset.

However Blow’s gone on the report about The Witness operating in VR on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, proper? Yep, however once we requested to see if supporting both of these was nonetheless the case, the response wasn’t promising. A spokesperson has informed us that apart from not showing Sony’s headset there wasn’t another VR information to share. In January 2014, Blow wrote:

“In concept the entire recreation is playable on the system [HTC Vive], however if you end up rendering for VR the efficiency calls for turn into a lot larger, since you are rendering two scenes at greater decision than you may beforehand have been rendering one scene. So the complete recreation world with all content material at present doesn’t run quick sufficient for this system, however that’s the type of drawback that will get solved over time.”

Maybe after spending so lengthy engaged on the sport, now that it has been launched Blow wants a break from the undertaking. That is totally comprehensible and maybe what he wants is a few extra time earlier than saying something about VR. Perhaps now you must scour our interview our interview with Blow for any potential coded hints. Contemplating he explicitly informed us that he does not “really feel accountable to the world to make issues for them,” nevertheless, maybe getting your hopes up is not precisely sensible.
