The development team behind the forthcoming Project CARS committed to bringing the title to Project Morpheus on PlayStation 4 last year and have even gone so far as to allow media representatives to get hands-on with the Oculus Rift edition of the videogame. However, talking with VRFocus, Slightly Mad Studios has also confirmed that a Project Morpheus build exists and, in fact, wasn’t too great an ordeal to develop.
“Sony’s dev tools are really strong and we’ve got a great working relationship with them,” states Pete Morrish, Lead Producer at Slightly Mad Studios, in an interview with VRFocus. “So getting Project Morpheus up-and-running was relatively painless. Not easy as that would be doing our tech team a disservice, but relatively painless.”
When questioned about the eventual support for VR with the final Project CARS release, Morrish stated: “Certainly for Project Morpheus it’ll probably be patched in at a later date. For Oculus our pipeline and our tech is relatively mature so it may have… the builds that we’re putting out to the community at the moment are Oculus ready, so people who are WMD members that are playing the game that have Oculus can play it in VR.”
Project CARS is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U and PC and is set to launch next month. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest from Slightly Mad Studios including bringing you the full interview with Morrish later this week.
