PlayStation VR Release of Obduction Delayed

The PlayStation 4 version will still launch on 29th August, with a VR update coming later.

Last month developer Cyan announced that its sci-fi puzzle videogame, Obduction, would be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR on 29th August. While the standard console version is still being released on that date, the studio has now confirmed the virtual reality (VR) has been delayed.

Currently there are no further details on when Obduction will be coming to PlayStation VR, just that support will come in a post-launch update. Those that do buy the title will be pleased to know that the price does include the VR addition when it goes live.

Rand Miller, CEO of Cyan, Inc. said on PlayStation.Blog: “Making Obduction was quite a challenge. It’s taken our extremely talented team several years to take the concept from a Kickstarter project to the critically acclaimed title it has become. Creating a game with both traditional and VR experience meant that we had to consider VR in our design work before there were any VR headsets available. But we were determined to build an amazing gaming experience that provided not just a satisfying experience for PS4 players, but something that felt like a full VR game instead of a small demo for PSVR players.”

Obduction does already exist in a VR format, having released on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive earlier this year. While Miller doesn’t specify why the PlayStation VR version is taking longer, it could be to do with the reduced processing power of the PlayStation 4 in comparison to VR PC’s.

When a release date for the update is announced, VRFocus will let you know.
