According to Capcom’s annual report, Virtual Reality is going to be heavily supported by Capcom. A message from Resident Evil Producer Jun Takeuichi explains how they are working towards developing a Virtual Reality engine.
As stated below, Capcom is focusing their energy on breaking the barriers of Virtual Reality. At the present moment its focus is on bringing an engine to life for Virtual Reality, to deliver games that will satisfy fans and those who are buying into Virtual Reality so soon.
“At present, we are focusing our energy on challenging the virtual reality (VR) game market. In this terrifying world, you can twist and turn as you like, but there’s no escaping the creatures closing in on you…until you remove your VR headset and return to reality, that is. We delivered this very experienced with our “KITCHEN” VR technical demo at E3 2015. The response was excellent. Currently, we are building a new game development engine able to support VR, which is the hottest market right now, while simultaneously developing titles for current game consoles. We have just set sail on our latest voyage.”
Capcom’s drive to support the Virtual Reality market and the Console market at the same time is the only way that Virtual Reality will stay a reality. Grabbing big support from influential companies, Virtual Reality looks like its here to stay this time.
