Star Wars Battlefront II Won’t Have a VR Mode

While 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront had a VR mode released at later date for the PlayStation VR to coincide with the Star Wars: Rogue One movie, that won’t be the case for this year’s Star Wars Battlefront II. 

Speaking to MetroUK, Criterion General Manager Matt Webster was asked whether Battlefront II will have a VR mode, and thankfully, rather than dance around the question, Webster shot it down saying, “There is no VR.” and added that “it’s taken enough effort to make that.”

Having said that, Criterion designer John Stanely added that “VR for Criterion is something that’s very important,” which could mean that the studio is still working on the technology. 

In the same interview, Criterion revealed that Star Fighter Assault will be the lone mode for space battles, so don’t expect any TDM (team deathmatch) modes. 

Star Wars Battlefront II will have a beta before its release this October. Details on that beta have apparently leaked, which you can read about here.
