Surgeon Simulator 2013 developer Bossa Studios has confirmed to VRFocus that it is working on a virtual reality (VR) focused title. Studio co-founder and Gamer-In-Chief Henrique Olifiers revealed as much in an interview, stating that the project had been ‘thinking of VR since day 1’, though also confirming that the studio wouldn’t be turning VR-exclusive. Specifically which VR headsets the project would be coming to was not revealed.
“We are working on a project right now that we’ve thought of VR since day one,” Olifiers said when asked if the studio might consider a VR-only future. “So that is the one that we are trying to do right. All the other games we have we are doing the traditional way for traditional devices and so on. Especially because we are not even consumer level yet, right? We cannot just walk into PC World and buy a VR headset yet.
“It’s going to take a few years for that to happen so we cannot just work all our games VR and then go bankrupt. But we have one game which is thinking of VR since day 1 and we hope we will be able to exploit some of the lessons we have learned so far.”
Bossa Studios has previously added support for the Oculus Rift VR headset to its hit title, Surgeon Simulator 2013. Could the next project also be headed to the popular headset?
VRFocus will deliver the full interview with Olifiers later this week, and will continue to report on any and all developments from Bossa Studios’ VR project.
