One of the most ambitious virtual reality (VR) projects, which should arrive in 2018 for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, was Seeking Dawn from Multiverse Entertainment. A month after the release, the studio posted a roadmap of future updates, which included a version of the PlayStation VR by the end of the year. It should not have been, and this week the team confirmed that the port was canceled.
“I have two ads, good and bad. Let’s start with the bad. Long-term supporters of the multiverse are likely to understand where this is going. After 6 months of hard work, sleepless nights and tons of frustration, we officially cancel the Seeking Dawn project for PSVR. I know this is a bummer, believe me, we are even more upset than you guys. We did not want to accept the obvious and tried our best to keep the promise. I have only one request, please understand, guys, we are an indie company, a startup with a few limited resources, and believe me, if we didn’t care about our community, we would have abandoned the project much earlier; frankly, we just did not want to disappoint. Seeking Dawn for PSVR was a beautiful and ambitious dream, but, unfortunately, one that will not come true, at least for now. ”
The team continued its story:
“The good news is that we are working on the version of Seeking Dawn for the PC. This time it is not too ambitious, but we are already at the stage of alpha testing. I played the demo myself, and it’s awesome! I hope you enjoy the project as soon as it is ready. ”
Seeking Dawn on the PlayStation VR is almost an impossible dream. While many PC VR games were able to jump into the PlayStation 4, Seeking Dawn was one of the most visually impressive 2018 VR games – even if it was not enough in other areas.
Since then, the team has released a number of updates, including a special Halloween update. As Multiverse Entertainment keeps telling the latest news about the project, VRcue will keep you informed.
