EverQuest Next developer Sony Online Entertainment has expressed a desire to work with VR by way of Sony’s Project Morpheus headset. Whether or not this means virtual reality is coming to the new MMO remains to be seen, but EverQuest’s development director David Georgeson sure sounds keen.
Speaking with IGN, Georgeson said, “Morpheus is only for PlayStation 4. So if we’re making a PC product, obviously we’re not embracing Morpheus, unless Sony does some really cool stuff with it.
“But I mean, VR and AR are things that I personally am extremely excited about. I honestly think that’s the future of gaming. But we have a lot of miles to go before we sleep. So we need to build the game, and then we can talk about virtual reality and stuff beyond that.
“I will tell you this though: I’m hugely interested in Project Morpheus. So… we’ll see what happens.”
It follows Xbox co-founder Ed Fries stating that he couldn’t see Oculus and VR achieving mass market appeal, while Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney predicted that VR would “completely change the world.”
