Codemasters: VR is "something we really want to listen to what our players want"
Oct 1, 2018 —
Thank you very much for your support!
Codemasters lifted the embargo for the content from last Thursday Dirt Rally 2.0 reveal event in London: first gameplays, pictures and interviews are popping out around the web.
I'd like to share with you the interview that Chief Game Designer Ross Gowing had with Games.ch (thanks to Reddit user /u/NothingLV, who posted the video on the official dirtgame subreddit).
You can find the interview at this link.
For all of you too lazy to watch the video from the beginning (I know you're out there!), at around 8:25 mark, the Games.ch journalist asks Mr Gowing: "Are you considering to put this [the VR compatibility, FYI] in the game when it comes out or is it something you want to add later?". Ross reply was: "We are really proud of the VR mode from Dirt Rally and obviously it was a significant amount of work, so it's something we really want to listen to what our players want in terms of whether we do it for Dirt Rally 2.0. If players want us to focus on gameplay features and additions that we can get on that route or they want us to focus on VR. That is something we are open to, and we really just want to hear from our players, hear from our community about what they want from this game".
As I said, this interview was recorded during last Thursday event, well before Christina McGrath interview, even prior to the launch of this petition.
It's clear that sooner or later this petition will reach Codemasters, if it hasn't already: we gathered more than 1000 signatures in a few hours, but we need to do more to show the developers how much we want VR support for Dirt Rally 2.0 and that it's a core feature for a lot of players that want to enjoy the best rally simulator in the best way possible.
Please keep spreading the petition around, share it on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, with your friends and any other social.
And don't forget to use the hashtag #NoVRnoBuy: it needs to reach top of trends on Twitter and Facebook before we reach 2000 signatures!
Thanks to everyone of you.
