The full experience would be a nice addition.
Codemasters, the studio behind the game, has previous experience in implementing virtual reality into their products – Dirt 3 is one example. But they are on the fence when it comes to the lastest F1 installment.
In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz Lee Mather, the creative director for F1 2017, said that they are seriously thinking of a VR option but there’s lots to consider.
“It’s a little trickier for us because we’re pushing the boundaries when it comes to our physics. We have a lot of elements on screen with the OSD, so that’s a lot of information the player would have to process in VR. The changes to move the game onto VR would be fairly significant, and we wouldn’t want to do it if it meant compromising any area of the game. That’s why we’re holding back on that at the moment, but it’s something we’re considering.”
The game is out now on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
