Whereas the Fb-owned studio behind the sport mentioned it hoped to launch multiplayer concurrently on all platforms, a delay to the mode on PSVR has inexplicitly stretched to a whole yr. The studio says it continues to work on multiplayer for the PSVR model of Beat Saber, however gained’t say what the holdup is.
Beat Saber is one among VR’s hottest titles, and it was huge information for gamers on October 13th, 2020 when the sport lastly bought a multiplayer replace that allowed as much as 5 gamers to cut blocks to the beat collectively.
Previous to the replace’s launch, Fb-owned developer Beat Video games affirmed that it hoped to ship the replace on all platforms directly, however warned the PSVR model “would possibly” come a bit later.
“Expensive PSVR gamers, we’re doing every part we will to ensure we launch multiplayer concurrently on all platforms on October 13  however there could be a delay with the PS4 model. Please bear with us and verify our social media usually for brand new updates about PSVR.”
From that time ahead, the corporate has often affirmed that it’s nonetheless engaged on Beat Saber multiplayer for PSVR, however in some way that delay has gone on for a whole yr with no clarification.
Again in March of 2021 Beat Video games reminded PSVR Beat Saber gamers that it was nonetheless engaged on the characteristic, and mentioned it could see the identical updates as the opposite platforms as soon as it arrived.
“Expensive PSVR gamers, the crew continues to work on Multiplayer and can replace right here when we’ve extra to share. We’re additionally working so as to add all new Multiplayer tweaks we launched as we speak,” the developer tweeted.
Quick ahead to as we speak, the one yr anniversary of Beat Saber’s multiplayer replace, and the studio has no information to share. As of this week, the studio is “nonetheless engaged on PSVR multiplayer,” a spokesperson tells Highway to VR.
Contemplating that the studio initially anticipated to launch Beat Saber’s multiplayer mode on all platforms directly, it’s tough to discern what could possibly be blocking Beat Video games from doing so on PSVR; much more complicated, maybe, is that the studio hasn’t supplied any element into the scenario.
It appears unlikely that it’s a technical situation given the time the studio has needed to work on the issue.
