    Meanwhile 4 months earlier, John Mamais state "NO VR". But as the early gameplay showcase stated "everything you see is potentialy subject to change" ^^'
    Maybe Half-Life : Alyx changed their mind, but well, i am not sure you can properly integrate VR in a game if you haven't designed it around since the beginning. Lots of thing work with a mice but don't work with a VR controller and the other way around too, except if you developed all the game with the 2 systems in mind.

    One of the first thoughts I had after seeing the initial E3 presentation was how much Cyberpunk 2077 looks like it would be suited for VR. Have you guys thought about bringing the game to VR platforms in the future?

    We tried. We were thinking about VR but, yeah, we’re not doing anything with VR. We got the VR dev kits but…


    Wasn’t a good fit?

    Some things would work in VR but, I think, it’s not really viable yet. You’re not making a lot of money in VR yet. It’s very experimental and niche, yeah. I would like to. I like VR but we’re not doing anything with it yet.

    Good procreating lord CD Projekt, just give us the damn game. Are they trying to piss off every PC gamer that has supported them since the original Witcher?

    I don't think so.Through a contact of mine I was told that they simply can't keep up with the scope of the game, some of the employees already cancelled their planned vacations and are in full crunch mode now to iron out the bugs and to polish (no pun intended) the game.

    Do you honestly rather have unfinished game than wait a bit longer?

    Perhaps it's so that they can release it for Stadia at the same time as for other consoles and PC :D

    Likely it will just need some bug fixes and tweak few things like Dr.Puschkin said. CDPR has spend so much time and money for this game that they can not afford it to be just good. It has to be GOTY material and it has to sell.

    True...it HAS to be godlike, revolutionary,etc...if it will be just an Deus Ex clone then thunderstruck...
    There was a rumor that they had some serious performance issues - CPU's mainly were on fire both Intel/AMD but it seems now fixed - maybe those performance issues when fixed led to more bugs than can be afforded on a first day launch (Bethesda style...)
    Anyway I expect this game since that great trailer (babes, bullets and explosions - everything that a good fellow wants) some years ago so it better be good or else...

    That excuse seems a bit short sighted. Are they just now thinking of adding that? Probably more to it.

    Can you tell your contact i am interested to go full crunch to help during all week-end from today to release date ? My computer is ready to download the beta right now ! :D
    I'll gladly provide them with bug reports ! :D (not kidding, they could afford a small community group to test the game under NDA agreement with some kinda of "id mask" randomly appearning all over the screen)
    Lets hope previewer from press have already sent hundreds of report to help them ;)

    Seems a bit odd. Given the size and scope of the game I would have thought it would take a lot longer to add full VR support. Especially given that VR support was not intended from the out set and then you add on the fact that they are delaying what will no doubt turn out to be a massive seller to add support for what is still a very small market share? Sounds like spit balling! I am sticking with the delayed to match new console and gain the Black Friday / Christmas sales rush while giving them a bit more time to test and bug fix.

    It's the one title that may "force" me to make a VR purchase if true!

    Oh please, are we not allowed to have a sense of humor anymore? I'm a white redneck from middle America who drinks beer and whiskey, make fun of me, I don't care. You know why? Because I'm an adult. If you're triggered by everything then GTFO.

    Let's not kid ourselves, it's finished and bug tested as thoroughly as they can do on their own. Further bugs, which there will be plenty of, will only be discovered when hundreds of thousands are playing the game. Anyone who thinks the game wasn't delayed to more coincide with console launches is one of those people that don't believe their own eyes. The people who believe there is never anything conspiratorial are dumber than the conspiracy theorists. That's like believing something scummy has literally never been planned out before.

    Sure they might want more bug testing time, sure they might want to crowbar in VR, but it's more sure the new consoles are the biggest deal to them.

    Just 3 weeks before their announcement of the 2nd delay they were talking about how they're 100% sure the planned launch date will happen. Gee, I wonder what could happen in mere weeks to throw off their estimates so wildly. :rolleyes:

    Vodka is Eastern Europe alcohol beverage, I wouldn't limit it to Russia. See countries that produce top quality vodka.
    Yeah, there lots of pain in history of Soviet Union, I wouldn't deny that.

    But my point about Vodka, is that it appears in Witcher games, since Gerald drinks vodka to get drunk. (At least in Witcher 1 and 2, those that I played)

    Would be very smart of CDPR. VR's time has finally come I am telling you. The Oculus Quest is the catalyst and the Quest 2 will breakout. Everyone I know wants one. Would make CDPR heroes of VR community and will be an auto-buy like Half Life for anyone. Carmack another genius he took Palmer Luckeys unrefined kernel and pushed boldly. Oculus Link and turning it into both a wireless PC VR headset and mobile and both of relatively high quality with no cameras and confusing garbage to turn off most people and at an affordable price I tell you now they did it. its here.

    This short delay shouldn't be a big issue, not as big as delaying it the first time for multiple months.
    On VR as the glorified saviour and selling point, not going to happen. Market's way too small. Maybe for consoles and their VR stuff but PC VR is a niche product and probably will remain one until better and cheaper headsets become a thing.

    I think it's more likely bug fixing and / or getting ready for next gen consoles, not so much VR.
