Digital Actuality has been touted as the following large factor within the online game business. There are high-end headsets out there for PC, and on the console entrance, Sony has launched a extra reasonably priced expertise for the PlayStation four. Even Nintendo had some enjoyable with this concept earlier this yr when it launched the cardboard accent Labo VR on its hybrid system.
Does VR in its present kind pose a risk to the way forward for conventional video video games, although? In keeping with CD Projekt’s senior vp of enterprise improvement Andrzej Nowakowski, there’s nothing to fret about. Throughout a Q&A at a current investor earnings name for the corporate, Nowakowski said the next:
VR stays a particularly nichey area of interest of the market, prefer it’s very, very small.
This was in response to a query that requested if The Witcher three: Wild Hunt developer was in any respect involved about Valve’s new VR recreation Half-life: Alyx (due out in March 2020) taking away gross sales from CD Projekt’s April 2020 launch, Cyberpunk 2077.
Whereas we agree Half-Life deserves some respect, maybe CD Projekt Purple must be extra involved about conventional releases taking the highlight off Cyberpunk 2077 across the identical time – comparable to DOOM Everlasting and even Nintendo’s way of life simulation title, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
