Two PlayStation VR Games Delayed: ‘The Inpatient’ And ‘Bravo Team’ Moved To 2018 Release
Two of the most anticipated games coming to Sony's PlayStation VR headset won't be arriving this year as planned.
Supermassive Games, the developers behind 2015's Until Dawn for the PS4, has delayed both The Inpatient and Bravo Team, moving them to 2018 instead of their promised 2017 launch.
Supermassive Games Adjusts PSVR Release Dates
The developers announced the updated release dates on its official website.
The Inpatient, a horror game set in the same world of Until Dawn, is launching Jan. 23 in the United States and a day later in Europe and international markets. It was originally scheduled to launch on Nov. 21.
Bravo Team, a first-person co-op shooter, will launch March 6 in the United States initially as well, and then it will arrive in other international markets a day later. It was supposed to launch on Dec. 5.
Both games were announced during E3 earlier this year, along with Hidden Agenda, a gritty crime thriller for the PS4 that launched this past October in the United States and will head to other parts of the world come Nov. 22.
Supermassive Games describes The Inpatient as "a horror game with psychological elements that takes you back to the Blackwood Sanatorium in the 1950s." It is set 60 years prior to the events of Until Dawn, where the protagonist wakes up in a strange medical facility having zero recollection of what happened.
"Make meaningful choices in a branching narrative that leads to different endings as you try to figure out who you are, and why you're here. But in a world where you can barely trust your own memories ... how can you truly trust anyone else?"
Bravo Team, on the other hand, is an "immersive, first-person cover shooter built for co-op," according to SuperMassive games. Fittingly, it is compatible with the PlayStation aim controller, enabling players to experience the action firsthand.
"With precision tracking technology for deadly accuracy and vibration feedback for total immersion, you'll feel every shot."
Sony released the PSVR in October 2016, which sold over a million units, to the company's surprise. A year later, it launched a new $400 model with slight but welcome improvements.
It also recently announced a $450 Skyrim VR bundle that comes with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, a demo disc containing 13 VR games, and a pair of move controllers. It hit shelves Nov. 17.
