    Being and enthusiast of racing sims and VR I understand the allure of being totally immersed in the game. While racing VR still has a way to go to being included in many platforms I'll continue to enjoy my racing in any form I can get it. I look forward to the VR experience!

    @Francisnf No, it hasn't been confirmed. I think if VR would be supported than Lee would've talked about it yesterday. So I think VR players have to wait another year.
    Or two. Or three. Or until someone else gets the franchise.

    I am very, very disappointed that after so many years there is no VR support. What a shame!

    I agree with @TigerFeetz. The introduction of the Halo makes a VR mode in F1 2018 a must have feature!
    Codemasters wants to get players into the F1 world as much as possible, so with the Halo nowadays, they should support the VR community too in order to get that specific feel in the cars. I cannot imagin Codemasters has not paid attention to this, as they also were solving the Halo display issue on 2D screens. So I just hope they get this thing working in VR too with the 2018 release. Definately looking forward to it!

    The graphics in F1 are getting pretty high-end these days, I would expect VR would need some compromises graphically, that's probably half of the issue implementing it. Not that it couldn't be done.

    I dunno. Since you can't feel the G-forces, racing in VR still seems kinda 'meh' to me.
    Braked: the past tense of brake.
    Broke, brokenanything within reach when I hear racing gamers say 'broke' instead of 'braked'.

    And that's a lot much better than a 2d screen, right? That's why you feel a lot better about the car, the track, the curves, the better visibility and the most sense.

    Pcars2 has a lot more demanding graphics and has VR support. Myself I won't be buying another Codemasters F1 game until they add support.  I've been here since the beginning and bought it each year, but I have no interest in playing a racing sim without VR, as it doesn't give me the same buzz. 

    I've seen people say the current spec engine doesn't have VR support like the last one, but that's a load of rubbish. Why would you downgrade an engine capabilities with a so called improved engine. It seems to me they just can't be bothered to support VR, each year its the most requested feature, each year its totally ignored.

    Since PS4/X1 doesn't support vr, PC gamers have to wait.
    F1 Series are  console SIM, they don't concern about PC gamers when their games sell on steam are less than 200-300,000 copies.
    How much percent of that number own a VR?

    However they don't add VR support because they are lazy developers, almost every racing studio brought vr support for their games, LFS did that, Pcars, A. Corsa, Rfactor 2, Even R3E with that DX9 engine has vr.
    Indie game like  Racecraft vr's Supp is coming also,

    So don't listen to "thats pricey" or other nonsense , they  just dont want to implement VR supp, that's it.

    Except its not, each year they do a survey and VR is the most requested feature and has been for 3 years. 
    I can see why people don't come to this section of the forum, it's full of people that's sole purpose is to disrupt conversations.

    And they get a F1 license, which is a shame. And they have E sports competition without VR. What a shame!

    You're boring . To Codemasters know that this would be an update of 100 MB not 60 euro game.

    I'd stake my mortgage on "working safety car" being more requested this year than VR.
    Love how people that disagree with a counter argument to their flawed statement 'flag' thethe comm rather than just disagree 🤦

    Not to mention that they quite pleasantly did make VR possible for "Dirt Rally" which runs on the same "ego engine" as all the other Codemasters games.....
