Don't expect Battlefield or Mass Effect in virtual reality anytime soon
Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson says he's "eager to see" where virtual reality headsets like Oculus Rift go, but explains that EA needs to see a healthy install base before jumping in.
Could we one day see Battlefield, Mass Effect, or Need for Speed in virtual reality? Perhaps, but don't expect that to happen anytime soon, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson said today.
During a post-earnings financial call today, Wilson said EA is "eager to see how Oculus Rift evolves," but made clear that virtual reality technology needs to sell a healthy number of units before EA gets on board.
"Oculus VR has done an amazing job in the realm of virtual reality. We're eager to see how the headset evolves over the coming years," Wilson said. "For us, we're always cognizant of immersive technologies and new opportunities. And with every new technology, it's important for us to be sure that there will be an attractive install base before investing heavily. But Oculus VR is certainly making strong progress."
