Crytek Confirms Robinson: The Journey Is A Timed Exclusive For PSVR, Shares Development Update
“We do have plans for the title’s future which will see as many players as possible experiencing Robinson,” confirms Crytek’s Niklas Walenski.
When it was first announced at Paris Games Week last year, Crytek’s upcoming VR title Robinson: The Journey was confirmed as a PlayStation VR exclusive. However in an interview with GamingBolt, Crytek’s Niklas Walenski, Game Designer on The Climb and Robinson: The Journey has confirmed that the game will land “first” on PSVR but they have plans for the game’s future so that it can be experienced by as many players as possible.
“We’re launching Robinson: The Journey first for PlayStation VR and all our efforts are focused on creating the best possible product on Sony’s platform. We do have plans for the title’s future which will see as many players as possible experiencing Robinson,” Walenski said to GamingBolt.
Walenski also shared an updated on how development of the game is progressing and how gameplay elements have been expanded since the game was announced last year.
“During development of Robinson: The Journey we went through multiple iterations where we tested different ideas and mechanics. Now the core loop has been tightened and we removed components which didn’t feel right for this installment. In future VR projects we would like to bring those back, because we think they are great ideas once the player is familiar with the medium and the scenarios we create.”
Robinson The Journey does not have a release date yet but is expected to launch later this year.
