The recently released PlayStation 4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture has had excellent reviews all around since its launch in August. The videogames developer The Chinese Room has also been looking into virtual reality (VR) technology, not nessessarily for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, but a possible future title.
Talking to Power Up Gaming, the studios creative director Dan Pinchbeck confirmed to the site that the company was looking at the technology and because of past development for the PlayStation 4 it would likely be PlayStation VR that it would support.
“We’re a pretty small team so we can’t be solving VR solutions. I think there are quite a lot of VR things that need solving before you’d get a game like Rapture – or the scale of Rapture – onto VR. But as a type of game, absolutely, and we’re very very interested. We’re keeping a very close eye on it,” said Pinchbeck.
The creative director was also asked if a possible sequel to Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture may come to PlayStation VR, to which he responded: “Everybody’s Still at the Rapture.”
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a first-person adventure videogame, that takes place in a small English village whose inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared due to world-shattering events beyond their control or understanding.
