One of the bigger surprises in VR gaming news this year was People Can Fly teaming up with VR studio Incuvo to adapt Bulletstorm to a virtual reality format. Unfortunately, players are going to have to wait a bit longer than expected to play it. The game was supposed to come out before 2023 ended, but the studio and publisher have announced that it will be delayed into 2024. Bulletstorm VR is now expected to launch in January.
The Bulletstorm VR team announced the delay of the game in a post on the official Bulletstorm Twitter this week. According to the post, Bulletstorm VR is now expected to arrive on the Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro headsets, as well as SteamVR, on January 18, 2024.
Bulletstorm VR was announced out of nowhere at the Meta Quest Showcase 2023 presentation earlier this year. While Bulletstorm might be considered a bit fast-paced and nausea-inducing for a first-person VR game, People Can Fly seems confident in Incuvo’s ability to transfer Bulletstorm’s ridiculous violence and speed over to VR in a reasonable and fun way. It will remain to be seen if the developer can pull it off, but with the extra time, Incuvo has more opportunity to smooth out the rough edges and make Bulletstorm VR a great time.
With the new release date for Bulletstorm VR set, stay tuned for more coverage and updates on the game as they drop. We’ll share them right here at Shacknews.
