Eve Online developer CCP has pulled out of virtual reality development, a move that affects some 100 or so staff.
The second coming of VR has been built around magic moments. Come meet the dinosaur on Oculus Dreamdeck! Hang out with the shark in VR Worlds! Experience the virtual k-hole that is Rez Infinite! The novelty might be wearing a little thin after 12 months on the shelves and in our living rooms, but this is still a medium that has the capacity to delight and surprise. At GDC a couple of weeks ago I was witness to another magic moment that convinced me there might be something to this VR lark after all.
Eve Online and Eve: Valkyrie developer CCP has formally announced virtual reality sport game Sparc, which had been known as Project Arena until now. It's CCP's first non-Eve universe game.
