It’s a busy time for UK-based virtual reality (VR) developer, nDreams. The studio has recently launched its second title for the Gear VR mobile head-mounted display (HMD) in the form of Perfect Beach. With this experience now out of the way, the team is turning its attention back to its upcoming first-person adventure title, The Assembly, for Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, with a new trailer arriving next week. Beyond that? nDreams has teased that is currently has ‘multiple unannounced projects’ in the works, and will be embracing a new VR platform.
Writing on its new website, nDreams has confirmed that it will be developing for Valve and HTC’s Vive, the SteamVR HMD that’s due to launch in time for holiday 2015. The studio didn’t announce which of its titles would be coming to the device, although it could be that the PC version of The Assembly will support it, given that Oculus Rift support is already on the way. Elsewhere, the developer notes: “We’ve already worked on a number of VR titles – including SkyDIEving, Gunner, Perfect Beach and the upcoming The Assembly – and we continue to develop multiple unannounced projects.”
So far nDreams hasn’t made mention of any projects past The Assembly. Could these unannounced projects be new titles for high-end HMDs or more additions to Gear VR’s growing library? In terms of The Assembly, the developer has in the past stated that it is developing the videogame for the launch of both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus. Both of these HMDs are due to arrive in the first half of 2016; could this be when The Assembly also arrives?
VRFocus will continue to follow nDreams and its work in VR closely, reporting back with any further updates from the developer.
