DayZ-udvikler: Der er ingen penge i VR

DayZ skaberen Dean Hall har i en kontroversiel udtalelse delt sine skeptiske tanker omkring VRs fremtid. Hall mener blandt andet, at for udviklere er der ingen penge i at investere i VR-udvikling. Du kan se han udtalelse herunder.

There is no money in it. I don't mean "money to go buy a Ferrari". I mean "money to make payroll". People talk about developers who have taken Oculus/Facebook/Intel money like they've sold out and gone off to buy an island somewhere. The reality is these developers made these deals because it is the only way their games could come out.
Here is an example. We considered doing some timed exclusivity for Out of Ammo, because it was uneconomical to continue development. We decided not to because the money available would just help cover costs. The amount of money was not going to make anyone wealthy. Frankly, I applaud Oculus for fronting up and giving real money out with really very little expectations in return other than some timed-exclusivity. Without this subsidization there is no way a studio can break even, let alone make a profit.
Some will point to GabeN's email about fronting costs for developers however I've yet to know anyone who's got that, has been told about it, or knows how to apply for this. It also means you need to get to a point you can access this. Additionally, HTC's "accelerator" requires you to setup your studio in specific places - and these specific places are incredibly expensive areas to live and run a studio. I think Valve/HTC's no subsidize/exclusive approach is good for the consumer in the short term - but terrible for studios.
As I result I think we will see more and more microprojects, and then more and more criticism that there are not more games with more content.

Er i enige i Halls sortmaling af VR?
