We’ve seen a few games drop VR requirements before, but this is still an unusual move when many games are adding VR modes. It’s not surprising that the developers would branch out, though. While VR headsets are increasingly affordable, there’s no question that the majority of gamers don’t have them. That makes VR gaming a tough sell, and it’s not a very sustainable business. Unless studios can afford to experiment, they may have little choice but to write games for regular players first and tack on VR support as a bonus.
