Sony has officially announced and named PSVR2, and it’s clear that larger investments in the VR space are going to be an important part of the PlayStation strategy going forward. Firesprite and Guerrilla are working together on Horizon Call of the Wild, for instance (which is apparently going to redefine what it means for a VR game to be AAA)- but will major VR titles that have already come out on other hardware also eventually make their way to PSVR2?
The one that comes to mind immediately, of course, is Half-Life: Alyx. Valve’s seminal first person shooter is regarded by many to be among the best VR games to date, if not the very best, and according to XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker, who’s been a prominent PlayStation leaker in the past, it’s eventually going to make its way to PSVR2.
In a recent tweet, Baker said that Valve and Sony have already worked out a deal for the same, and though there’s no word yet on when exactly it will happen, Half-Life: Alyx will indeed come to the new VR headset.
As always, it’s best to take this with a pinch of salt until something is officially announced, though it does seem like getting Half-Life: Alyx over to PSVR2 is something that Sony should be attempting to do. The new PlayStation Sense controllers are, after all, much better suited to the game than the original PSVR, and Valve itself has also previously expressed interest in potentially bringing the game to PlayStation.
Whether or not it ends up happening remains to be seen, but we’re certainly keeping our fingers crossed.
From what I’ve been told, they have. Not sure when it’s happening though. I thought this was one of those open secrets? https://t.co/RPrdPArDLc
