If you haven’t heard it yet, VR is a big thing. We still don’t know if it’s just a fad or if it has a viable future in the gaming industry, but it seems like everyone is jumping on the VR hype train.

However, in a recent interview with FENIX Bazaar, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided producer Oliver Proulx says that he’s excited to see the future of VR, but states not every AAA game can just support VR.

VR seems like a great opportunity, but we’ll see where the content takes it, Mankind Divided producer Proulx says. I don’t think you can simply take an AAA game like Mankind Divided, slap it on VR, and call it a day, he said. The VR experiences will have to be developed with the specificity of the media in mind. I’m excited to see where developers will take it in the next few years.

Mankind Divided will support VR, though. Players will have four locations to explore in their VR headsets, including Adam Jensen’s apartment which we saw at E3 2016.

The last mainstream VR headset to release is the PlayStation VR. It is set to release this October and will launch alongside 50 games. We also recently received some new details on the device and how its cinematic mode works, to read more on that click here.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set to release next month on August 23 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
