Rage 2 in virtual reality? A Big “NO!” from Tim Willits

It would only be a good idea if you want to vomit, says the developer.

As part of the interview given to 3DJuegos recently, Tim Willits, industry veteran and creative director of id Software categorically ruled out the notion of bringing Rage 2 to virtual reality glasses, considering it prone to generate motion sickness.

Rage 2 is NOT perfect for virtual reality in any way unless you think that VR (Virtual Reality) means ‘Vomit Rocket’. It would just be a terrible, terrible idea.”, Explained the developer, whose career goes back to the days of Doom and Quake.

It should be noted that the mobility and complexity of mechanics of Rage 2 certainly seem incompatible with virtual reality, although the statements of Willits differ from those of Magnus Nedfors, project director, who originally said that virtual reality was a technology they were analyzing.

The question came from the first-person perspective of Rage 2, as well as the virtual reality games that both id Software and Bethesda have launched recently.

Product of the collaboration between Avalanche Studios and id Software, Rage 2 will debut on May 14 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, as a first-person shooter, located in an open world and with inter-vehicle combat.
