Titanfall VR Would Make People “Barf”
Titanfall players shouldn’t expect VR support in the future.
“I used to think there would be,” said producer Drew McCoy speaking in a PAX East interview. That being the case, the game’s highly mobile gameplay has left McCoy convinced that VR compatibility could actually leave players physically sick.
“I don’t know that people are going to be able to keep their lunch down. Maybe in a titan because you’re stuck to that horizontal plane. But if you’re trying to wall-run and look down six stories, I think people are going to barf everywhere,” he said. He would go on to affirm that he is, in fact, excited about the potential uses of advancing virtual reality technologies. That said, he just “[doesn’t] know that Titanfall is one of them.”
McCoy also took time to further discuss a recently revealed single player prototype for Titanfall that the company produced early in the game’s development. While he said that a single-player game likely isn’t in the cards for Titanfall at this point he expressed interest in seeing how gamer might respond to the early version. “It will be interesting to see the Internet’s reaction of ‘Oh, look at that, they’ve got a single-player in their back pocket!’ No, no, no. We prototyped this tiny little thing.”
