Will TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 feature VR?

VR will not feature in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 at release. “You have to understand that VR [in motorbike games] is not so easy, there [are] many other aspects to managing motion sickness,” explains Fabio Respighi, Head of Design at RaceWard Studio.

“The camera is very different than in a car: because sitting in a car, the head is not moving with the [car’s movements]. But with the motorbike, the rider is [moving with the bike’s movements],” he concluded.

RaceWard has not ruled out VR in the future, but it will definitely not be a launch feature of the game.
