Developers, could you please add PS4 Pro support to VR as promised? EDIT: it's there in some form

I just bought the VR expansion as I believed what I found here:
https://mobile.twitter.com/dirtgame/status/819845802206044161

Unfortunately there's no Pro support at all (it's not in the patch notes and it's clearly not there, I tested the game with both standard and Pro, I have both).
No Pro support is very bad for VR, so it's not something trivial, and I don't get why you promised something you didn't deliver (I wouldn't have bought the expansion with no Pro support).

Will Pro support be added sooner or later?
Thanks.

    Wow, it's advertised here too but no details were given.

    Could some official please tell us what's going on?
    What are EXACTLY those improvements?

    Pro support in VR titles is very obvious, I see zero improvements in DR (I have both consoles side by side, I tested and owned literally all VR titles). Resolutution is the same, alising is the same, textures are the same, lightining effects are the same, shadows are the same, etc etc.

    What's wrong? Could we have an official answer?
    Thank you.

    To quote @ChristinaMc in the article you linked:
    The PS VR DLC is PS4 Pro optimized, but the base game isn’t.

    So I hope you compare VR version on both platforms.

    Sure, it's just the VR version.
    I actually have the game on PC too, bought when it was in early access, on day one too, so I am a fan.
    I bought the PS4 version JUST for the VR support, I have the PSVR hardware and nothing else, so I'm not really happy right now.
    As we are quoting Christina, "The PS VR update comes PS4 Pro optimized, and you’ll literally be able to see the difference with the graphical improvements it brings — so those of you with the hardware can enjoy the benefits of your PS4 Pro."
    Well, were are the differences?
    Really, could we have an answer?
    I really belive something went wrong in the patch process as there's NO difference at all.
    Is it possible to post VR screenshot? I'll do that tomorrow if no answer is given.

    I did more testing and tried a different stage.
    I noticed there's some more debris on the ground in the Pro version, so there's a difference, and maybe it's stage related, I guess a side to side comparison will reveal more (I don't have 2 vr sets).
    What I can say is that at first glance the difference between pro and std isn't really noticeable, so std vr players aren't really missing anything.
    I guess some supersampling on the Pro would the the real deal, the aliasing is really disctracting (it's actually better NOT having the additional debris on the ground as they are "frying" due to insanely low resolution).
    Well, I'll just call it a day and play, the VR version is soooooo good, as good as this fantastic game.

    It seems that PS4 Pro is in a bit of a grey zone at the moment, I was under the impression that "ALL" Games released after the PRO launch would be optimized for the PRO system. It seems that it isn't he case as the guys at DIRT4 said only "we are looking into it"! I would pick up a VR for PS4 but only if games support the PRO and are optimized for the PRO as otherwise the system isn't much use is it?

    Pro is getting a boost mode in the next PS update which unleashes the pros power . it seems it will increase frame rates quite a bit .
    Just got picked up the VR version of dirt on a standard PS4 and it's awesome

    I've tried the PS4 pro with boost mode and it certainly speeds up dirt rally and gets rid of the screen tearing. Just gotta decide whether to splash out on VR now.
