In an interview with Glixel, Howard revealed that the company was still working on bringing Fallout 4 into virtual reality. “We definitely are. That’s the promise of VR, being in a big virtual world. The core experience, meaning you put on the headset and you’re standing in the world of Fallout and can go where you want, just that little bit is every bit as cool as you hope it would be. Once we did that, we were like, ‘OK, we gotta see where this goes.’”
No doubt that this will be an interesting experience, especially given the gameplay nature of Fallout 4, and the success of the Fallout franchise in general. However it seems that Howard isn’t that concerned about how well the VR version of Fallout 4 will do in terms of sales, and that he is more focused on the experience that it can bring to the table.
“We’re not so worried about how many we’re going to sell or what the market is. That will all sort itself out. We have an opportunity to make something really unique. We’d rather do that than make some other tiny experience. I don’t think that’s what people want from us.” We’re not sure when the VR version of Fallout 4 will be released, but last we heard they were aiming for 2017.
