Developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix’s upcoming iteration of the Deus Ex franchise, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, can’t just be slapped on VR.
In a recent interview with FENIX Bazaar, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Producer Oliver Proulx discussed the opportunity of bringing the game onto VR, and he admitted that it’s a “great opportunity,” but “you can simply take an AAA game like Mankind Divided, slap it on VR, and call it a day.”
VR seems like a great opportunity, but we’ll see where the content takes it, I don’t think you can simply take an AAA game like Mankind Divided, slap it on VR, and call it a day. The VR experiences will have to be developed with the specificity of the media in mind. I’m excited to see where developers will take it in the next few years.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided releases on August 23 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
