Rockstar is adding a new AAA VR title to its portfolio. The company may have been inspired by the success of the LA Noire VR  spin-off, as well as this year’s release of Half-Life: Alyx.


LA Noire: The VR Case Files

Developing a new large-scale VR game with an open world is Australian studio Video Games Deluxe. The news was posted on its LinkedIn profile. The project is commissioned by Rockstar. The two companies already collaborated on LA Noire: The VR Case Files.

No information is available on the future game. Its name, genre and approximate release date are not disclosed. It might not even be a completely new title. Video Games Deluxe might be porting one of the existing Rockstar titles to VR. GTA 5?

Video Games Deluxe has exclusively worked with Rockstar for the past seven years. The Sydney-based development team includes 10 people (currently hiring, by the way).

This team released LA Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive in 2017, and later brought it to PlayStation VR. The content of the VR version was significantly reduced compared to the original. They took a number of selected detective stories from LA Noire and redesigned them for VR headsets.

This year’s biggest VR event has been the release of Half-Life: Alyx. Analysts predicted that this title would push the development of VR games.
