Alien: Isolation has definitely been one of the scarier games to release within the past few years, so much so that many had a hard time even finishing the game. However, as scary as playing the game on consoles or PC is, there’s definitely a way to make that game even scarier in the future.
The way to do that would be with VR, and although a demo for the game was done on Oculus Rift it was never turned into a full game. Now the subject of bringing Alien: Isolation to VR has come up again as Sega’s European boss Jurgen Post spoke to MCV, where he said the following:
“VR has caught the whole company’s attention. We have a lot of VR kits in the office and people are playing with it. We are exploring ways to release games. We’ve not announced anything, but we are very close to making an announcement.”
“We did Alien: Isolation about three years ago on Oculus Rift, it was a demo that was bloody scary. To bring that back to VR would be a dream and dreams can come true… VR will take time, but we will start releasing some titles just to learn. It is a platform for the future.”
Alien: Isolation originally launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2014, and there’s been no word yet on whether or not the game will get a sequel.
