Much to the delight of avid gamers, a “Resident Evil” Virtual Reality (VR) version may just well be in the works.
As noted by Rapid News Network, Capcom had hinted it will be out with some news for fans, and yesterday, the company released the “Integrated Report 2015.” As it turns out, the report highlights that Consumer Games Development Division 1, responsible for bringing us the “Resident Evil” Franchise, indeed has VR titles in its line of focus.
Headed by Jun Takeuchi, Consumer Games Development Division 1 has established that they are definitely looking at the VR gaming market.
He said, “At present, we are focusing our energy on challenging the virtual reality (VR) game market. In this terrifying world, you can twist and turn as you like, but there’s no escaping the creatures closing in on you…until you remove your VR headset and return to reality, that is.”
The team had also gaven a demo in June this year at E3 which involved a “survival horror themed demo,” dubbed as “Kitchen,” for the PlayStation VR headset, as shared by Rapid News Network.
Development Division 1 has just “set sail” into the world of developing VR games. Takeuchi said, “Currently, we are building a new game development engine able to support VR, which is the hottest market right now, while simultaneously developing titles for current game consoles. We have just set sail on our latest voyage. “
There is no word on what titles will be pursued by them under the VR category. However, if the horror game demo is anything to go by, Play Station aficionados won’t be wrong in thinking that the team probably agrees that having a VR version of a horror game does seem like a good match.
“Resident Evil” fans can definitely keep their fingers crossed for this one and also keep an eye out for more updates.
