If there’s one developer that almost everyone would like to see work with the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) it’s Naughty Dog. The Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) owned studio has made a name for itself in the past decade with its Uncharted trilogy and 2013’s The Last of Us, both of which combine engaging storytelling with thrilling gameplay. Finally, the developer’s Neil Druckmann has weighed in on the technology.
“There are amazing opportunities,” Druckmann recently said of VR in an interview with MCV. “We’ve had some brainstorms over here as far as what we could do, and there’s right away unique things of how you can use perspective to get new kinds of experience that you can’t get any other way.
“At the same time, there’s still a lot of prove. There hasn’t yet been that one experience that says ‘Oh yeah, I have to get VR for this’. Someone’s going to make it, someone’s going to make that game that’s like ‘Oh crap, I have to get VR for this game’, but I have yet to see that.”
Druckmann then joked that the developer wasn’t yet ready to announce the device for its upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
All that said, could we see the developer work with the technology after the release of Nathan Drake’s next adventure? Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is scheduled to arrive in Holiday 2015, by which time we’ll hopefully be significantly closer to the release of Project Morpheus.
