Alien: Isolation for Oculus Rift Was a Protoype, “No Full Game in Development”
Sorry, horror fans.
The Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation has been hyped up as a return to the classic Alien style of horror via first person adventuring. This experience would have felt perfect for Oculus Rift and Sega even showcased the game running on the VR headset at E3 2014.
However, the developer has confirmed via the game’s official Twitter that, “What we’ve got at the moment with @oculus is a prototype, there’s no full game in dev.”
Sega further corroborated this in conversation with Eurogamer. “At present, it’s just a prototype and does not represent a game currently in development at this point in time. It’s a truly amazing experience though and brings the game to life in ways we could not have imagined when we started the project. It’s one of the most terrifying demos you’ll ever play.”
Either way, it’s not happening. Alien: Isolation will be out on October 7th for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
