A lot of other AAA video games have been added a VR feature in order to take advantage of the new hardware. It appears Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will just stay as a normal game without any VR gimmicks added in.
Fenix Bazaar had the opportunity to talk with Olivier Proulx who is the producer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. He is excited about VR but is unsure if they can add it to the game.
He said: “VR seems like a great opportunity, but we’ll see where the content takes it. I don’t think you can simply take a AAA game like Mankind Divided, slap it on VR, and call it a day – the VR experiences will have to be developed with the specificity of the media in mind. I’m excited to see where developers will take it in the next few years!”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a big game so they cannot just patch in VR support so easily. It also sounds like they don’t want to slap on a random VR experience like Square Enix has done for Final Fantasy 15. If VR becomes really popular, they might consider doing a VR experience for the Deus Ex universe in the future.
