Bethesda currently has plenty of large ongoing VR projects. There has however recently been some confusion about when you will be able to play what on which platforms.
Owners of high-end headsets need not worry, as they will in future probably get to play everything at some point. The company has just released a statement on Twitter on its plans to support as many platforms as possible. Images of Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR accompanied the tweet.
The release of Fallout 4 is expected this October on HTC Vive, and Skyrim VR will hit PlayStation VR (PSVR) in November. We will likely see a Vive version of Skyrim follow soon after the PSVR release. But there is at present no clear indication on the company’s plans for the Oculus Rift. This is probably due to Bethesda’s estranged relationship with the company, after owner ZeniMax Media recently took Oculus to court over an alleged technology theft.
Oculus is now trying to appeal the $500 million fine it was ordered to pay ZeniMax. So, it comes as no surprise that Fallout, Skyrim, and the PSVR and Vive-bound Doom VFR will not be brought to Rift anytime soon.
