In May 2014 VRFocus reported on the release of Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut on PC. The first-person puzzle experience includes support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) and developer Toxic Games had told VRFocus that it intends to launch the title on PlayStation 4 with possible support for the Project Morpheus VR HMD. However before solid details of the port have arrived a sequel, Q.U.B.E. 2, has been announced.
Q.U.B.E. 2 debuted at the PlayStation press conference at Gamescom 2014 on 12th August 2014. The title was included in a brief montage video that also confirmed VR compatible titles Snow and Ether One were on their way to PlayStation 4. Despite the reveal, developer Toxic Games is yet to comment on the reveal, the possibilities of VR support for the new title, and the status of Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut on PlayStation 4.
Based on the footage, Q.U.B.E. 2 seems to be set in a similar environment to the first title, in which players would use high-tech gloves to manipulate cubes in order to solve a variety of puzzles. Following the montage SCE’s Jim Ryan confirmed that the title would be coming ‘first to console’ on PlayStation 4, suggesting that it will at the very least also be appearing on PC if not the Xbox One later down the line.
VRFocus will continue to follow Q.U.B.E. 2 going forward, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s progress.
