CCP Games has confirmed that it will still be bringing its upcoming EVE Valkyrie to the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset following news of Facebook purchasing makers Oculus VR. News of the $2 billion USD acquisition was followed by Minecraft creator Markus Persson pulling out of Oculus Rift development, but this will not be the case with CCP Games’ title, which is hoping to launch with the consumer version of the device.
The news was confirmed to Eurogamer. A CCP representitive told the outlet that “We’re very excited for our friends and colleagues at Oculus.
“We share their vision about the future of VR and gaming and are looking forward to participating in the consumer launch of the Oculus Rift with EVE Valkyrie.”
Of course, this won’t be the only headset to feature the space combat title. It was also confirmed for the PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus VR headset at the Game Developers Conference last week. VRFocus will continue to follow the developments behind the Oculus VR acquisition and bring you the latest.
