It has been revealed PlayStation 4 exclusive Driveclub was tested with the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset by developer Evolution Studios, but has since been removed due issues with simulator sickness. The news was confirmed by Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) Shuhei Yoshida, who stepped in to clarify initial rumours that the racing title was delayed to include support for the device.
Speaking to GameSpot, Yoshida confirmed that Driveclub had indeed been tested with the headset. In fact, Yoshida himself had tried it out while visiting Evolution Studios’ offices in the UK. According to the executive, the VR effect worked well when driving at low speeds, but didn’t hold up when putting you foot down.
“It’s kind of difficult and sickening,” Yoshida explained before confirming that Evolution Studios is “not working on Morpheus at all,” right now. He hasn’t been so quick to put down other rumours about studios such as Sony Santa Monica working with the headset however; could this mean that there’s some truth to them?
Driveclub‘s release date is still under wraps having been delayed off of the PlayStation 4’s launch last year. VRFocus will continue to keep you up to date about any and all VR titles from Sony and beyond.
