PlayStation VR’s Highly Anticipated Platformer Moss Delayed Until 2018

If you didn’t know already this Wednesday sees the start of Paris Games Week (PGW) 2017 in France and as is customary Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is holding its regular pre-event press conference, announcing lots of new titles for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. Even before the main event has started there’s been loads of announcements during the pre-show livestream. One of those was Moss, revealing that the title has now been delayed until February, 2018.

There was no mention on why Moss has been delayed by several months, with developer Polyarc previously confirming during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 that the videogame would be released later this year.

Moss takes players on a adventure with an adorable little mouse called Quill. Quill’s adventure sees her solving puzzles and exploring a larger-than-life world where certain creatures could very well swallow her in one.

VRFocus has extensively covered Moss since its initial announcement back in June, writing a glowing preview that said: “Moss deserves a place on your ‘most wanted’ list. After just one short play, the tease of more taxing puzzles and the forming of a non-verbal relationship with the adorable Quill is very compelling. The hope is high that Polyarc will carve a lengthy adventure that takes full advantage of the mechanics that have been laid out in this early demo.”

VRFocus also sat down with Chris Alderson, the Art Director at Polyarc to learn more about the title, revealing that what VR lacks are some mascots and hopefully Quill might just be able to fill that void.

While Moss may not be a new title for PlayStation VR, there have been several new videogames revealed including Survios’ Sprint VectorMegalith and Bow to Blood.

Plenty more PlayStation VR news is expected today and during the course of PGW 2017, so keep reading VRFocus for the latest updates from the event.
