Who’s ready for some more exclusivity news at this time on a Monday? Nobody? Ok then, we’re going to tell you anyway. It appears that Resident Evil 7’s VR mode will be exclusive to PlayStation VR when it releases next year. Exclusive for one whole year, in fact.
Yep, that means that those on PC with VR headsets will now have to wait a full year to experience Resident Evil 7 in VR, further pushing Capcom up the list of disliked developers and publishers. Hooray for exclusivity! The news came via a post on Reddit saying it was seen on Facebook, which seems rather legit thus far.
Notice the print in the bottom left? 12 months of exclusivity on PlayStation VR. Don’t let other sites fool you with clickbait headlines. The game itself will still release across available platforms, but it’s just the VR elements which will remain on the PlayStation platform for the year ahead. Bummer.
There has been no other mentions of VR headset support for the game, although with PC having access to Oculus Rift and Vive, and suggestions of VR support coming to Project Scorpio, this exclusivity could affect a good few interested players.
Resident Evil 7 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in January next year.
