Titanfall developer Respawn is developing a realistic military shooter for the Oculus Rift.
The currently untitled game is expected to be released in 2019, and studio head Vince Zampella said it will be an authentic military experience.
"We really want to depict being a soldier in combat in a more fully fleshed-out and realistic way,” he said.
Zampella said VR will allow the studio to recreate the “paranoia and tension” of soldiers' experiences in real combat situations.
Zampella has made a career creating military-inspired first-person shooters, including Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Call of Duty, and most recently, the Titanfall franchise.
None of these games could be called realistic shooters, so it remains to be seen if Respawn are going to create something truly authentic to real life military experiences, or just aim for a deeper sense of realism by translating a first-person shooter experience into VR.
