Realistic first person war game expected to arrive sometime in 2019.
Respawn Entertainment recently announced at the Oculus Connect event that it will be partnering with Oculus to develop a “super secret” VR game to release sometime in 2019. As a first person action title, CEO Vince Zampella talked about how it would focus on creating a realistic war experience. So it’s not related to Titanfall or Star Wars but will instead be a new franchise. Check out the official announcement video below.
CEO Vince Zampella noted that, “At Respawn, it’s about creating an authentic experience. We really want to depict being a soldier in combat in a more fully fleshed-out and realistic way. The combat experience in VR really gives you the chance to experience life closer to what a soldier would experience in real combat. It gives you more of that feeling of paranoia, and tension.”
How will this affect the development of the next Titanfall game, if it’s indeed being planned? That remains to be seen. Respawn is also working on a new action title set in the Star Wars universe.
