Recent progression in VR development has been phenomenal with countless new content being added to the platform with further promise for the future. Games like Half-Life: Alyx really push the limits of what our modern understanding of VR is and it definitely seems to grow at a faster pace than ever.
The team behind the legendary game, L.A Noire published by Rockstar have been in the VR scene once before with a sort of a VR remaster for the current generation. Having experienced the platform and knowing all the quirks definitely puts them on the spot.
In a recent post by the studio Video Games Deluxe on LinkedIn, it was revealed that the folks over at Rockstar Sydney have once again chosen them for a AAA VR title. This not only marks their 7-year anniversary of working together but also gives us a slight insight on what to expect.
Given how Rockstar is an undeniably one of the most perfectionism driven publishers its only natural for them to take their time into production. Moreover, the upcoming title is designed to be an open world set in a VR position. While Half-Life: Alyx did push many boundaries, the VR world is still somewhat new and raw.
Moreover, the post stated that a number of positions including Senior Programmers, Engine Programmer, Designer and Animator have opened up which clearly means that this project is very well in its pre-production setting. However, that’ll definitely turn heads once more info is released about the project.
