Respawn Entertainment made a quick appearance at the Oculus Connect stage yesterday where they announced an upcoming Oculus VR game centred around war simulation. While the studio is not in the position to reveal any specifics, they do have confirmed that the new game will not be related in any form with the Titanfall or Star Wars franchises which the studio reserves now for traditional gaming platforms.

Posting on the official website, director Peter Herschmann confirmed that Respawn Entertainment has partnered with Oculus for a "super secret" project. The objective of this deal is to take advantage of Oculus' expertise with the VR technology in order to create a game that offers a much higher sense of immersion than any other current title.

"There are so many cool parts to making a game in VR, but perhaps the most intense one is emotion", he exclaimed.

"While you know you're wearing a headset, your brain processes VR on an emotional level", he said, adding "it's all kinds of awesome". The sense of scale, the sense of presence, there's nothing else like it. So if you like giant robots, the Force, secret projects, or just want to work at the world's greatest studio, apply today.

Unfortunately, the studio needs to go "dark again", and it seems we won't be hearing about this game for quite some time.

With VR becoming more and more accessible to the general market, it will be interesting to see what this up and coming company has in store.
