Red Dead Redemption Developer Rules Out VR

Posted by at 11:08 am on June 2, 2016


Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick spoke more on the subject of the new tech today, appearing to rule out the possibility of the company going full-throttle in the expanding market.

While it has been confirmed that Rockstar will not launch any new games in 2016, the following year could see the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 arrive.

Recent rumours have pointed to a leaked map for the game, as well as a potential title and reveal at E3 in June.

And while fans are hopeful that they will see an RDR sequel confirmed later this month, it appears unlikely it will take advantage of any Virtual Reality tie-in.

Speaking at the Cowen and Company Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, Zelnick revealed his thoughts on the emerging, telling the audience: “It’s way too expensive right now.

  • “There is no market for an $2000 entertainment device that requires you to dedicate a room to the activity.”
  • “I don’t know what people could be thinking. Maybe some of the people in this room have a room to dedicate to an entertainment activity, but back here in the real world? That’s not what we have in America.”
  • “We have like $300 to spend on an entertainment device and we do not have a dedicated room. We have a room for a screen, a couch, and controllers. 
  • “We don’t have something where you stand in a big open space and hold two controllers with something on your head–and not crash into the coffee table. We don’t have that.”

And while Zelnick didn’t rule out VR as a potential success, it appears Take-Two will remain cautious until the price point lowers.
