Back in July, we reported that Obduction would be coming to PS4 and PSVR this August. But a few weeks ago it became clear that Cyan postponed the release of Obduction for PSVR, while the game would still release for PS4 as planned, tomorrow. People were rather confused about the sudden delay since the company didn’t give any reason for it.
However, we reached out to Cyan for confirmation on the cause of the delay and they confirmed that the game is still coming to PSVR but will release a bit later due to the certification process they have to go through with Sony. “The reason for this delay is it taking a bit longer than anticipated to go through Sony’s certification process for VR. We have not set a new launch date just yet, but hope to in the very near future. So stay tuned!” Cyan said in an email to VR The Gamers. Right now there is no set date for the PSVR release yet, which makes sense since the Cyan team doesn’t know when the certification process will be done. But I’m sure that the popular sci-fi puzzle game will be released as soon as the team gets the go-ahead from Sony.
If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Obduction’s trailer below:
On the Playstation Blog, CEO of Cyan, Inc., Rand Miller said “Making Obduction was quite a challenge. It’s taken our extremely talented team several years to take the concept from a Kickstarter project to the critically acclaimed title it has become. Creating a game with both traditional and VR experience meant that we had to consider VR in our design work before there were any VR headsets available. But we were determined to build an amazing gaming experience that provided not just a satisfying experience for PS4 players, but something that felt like a full VR game instead of a small demo for PSVR players.”
If you’re looking forward to the PSVR release of Obduction as much as I am, then make sure to keep following VR The Gamers so you can stay updated on when the game releases!
