because unlike Dirt rally it wasnt classed or isnt classed as one of the BEST VR GAMES ! its easy to kick or say shut up to VR people but if the previous game is so good at VR then it doesnt take a rocket scientist to understand why people who like VR want it in Dirt rally. i stayed out of the whole VR debate but in reality i think it would be a mistake NOT to add it to Dirt Rally 2.0 . im guessing honestly it is just done to money and deadlines. what id be looking at is the sales pitch long term also the brand. if you make a great driving game thats up there people will buy for that or celebrate it for that and every other addition which makes your brand better makes it a easier to buy product. also when others are doing so but you dont it can make you look like your not giving it your all. you make games like Dirt rally by giving everything ! if you dont you get games like Dirt 4. ideally make it clear if you doing VR . i dont get why this wasnt clarified ? YES/NO VR . then all the debates wouldnt start.everyone knows where they stand. possibly pre orders are the reason. as it may effect it but...what about the negativitiy that builds social media wise while the anwer isnt given ? what should of been a totally about the how good the game is discussion has kinda turned into a VR question time. id get this out the way as clearly as soon as possible so people can concentrate on how good the game is going to be.
Unfortunately the internet loves to complain about everything and anything and generally without logic, reason or knowledge. If VR was as easy and as cheap to implement as some people seem to think, then they would have done it. They have mentioned no VR at this time though right? I can't remember where I read/heard it.
It was mentioned at the beginning of the DiRT Show, that they are 'gonna look into it if there is enough demand'. I'm a huge fan of the series and have been for years, but I totally agree with dgeesi0 on how they are handling this. Back when DiRT Rally came out, it was mentioned during early access (if i recall correctly) that the Oculus would be getting supported. So as soon as it was possible, I pre-ordered the Rift, and after waiting a couple of months, there it was, the best VR (racing) experience to date. So when they announced a new F1 game, I thought, well that's gonna be a lot of fun in VR as well, but no, even 2 editions later there still is no support.So when DiRT 4 came out I was not sure what to expect. On the one hand the previous iteration in the series was being praised for it's VR implementation, but on the other hand any (serious) racing games released (by Codemasters) after it didn't get VR support added to it.So right after the announcement there were questions on social media etc, just like there are now, and it was said they would look at the demand and implement VR post launch if there was enough demand. But right after the game was released it felt like there was barely any support at all, and it became clear immediately VR wouldn't be making a return this time around.Now with DiRT Rally 2.0 we have been promised (at least) 6 months of support/dlc/season pass, with possible more if 'there is enough demand', which sounds promising, but how much I love the team and appreciate the hard work they are and have been doing, I can't help but feel sceptical about the statements that have been made regarding VR support.Having played DiRT Rally for over 400 hours (the last 200 hours of which have been in VR) and having played only 40 hours of DiRT 4 (most of which during the launch weekend) I feel like I would have rather paid another €50 for a VR DLC for DiRT 4 so I would have at least played it a decent amount of time.I understand it's to late for DiRT 4, but if it's about the money, I will wait for a VR DLC and gladly pay for VR support as I understand it costs a lot of development time and it is only serving a section of the userbase.
