Blizzard Thinks VR Is Not Mature Enough Now, But Will Keep Looking at It

Last week at BlizzCon 2016, Blizzard didn't have anything about VR to show the world and apparently they believed it's still a little bit early to put a lot of effort into this realm. Gio Hunt, EVP of Corporate Operations of Blizzard, told TrustedReviews in a BlizzCon interview that they still needed to "see that technology mature a little bit more".
 

There is no one VR platform today; there are actually several, and they’re all competing with one another. So there’s not even a standard for what VR or AR means, to be honest. So we’d need to see that technology mature a little bit more and solidify in terms of a specific platform, and we’d need to see some additional audience accumulate around that platform.


Hunt stated that once VR became big enough, Blizzard will act immediately.

You can just imagine once that occurs, what we could do with some of our universes, in an augmented or virtual reality way. So we’re absolutely looking at all of that, and once we see a substantial opportunity there, you can imagine we’ll be there.

Blizzard is one of the many game companies that don't have any substantial move in VR. Many franchises, such as Call of Duty and Tomb Raider, choose to offer players a small VR mode instead of a full-fledged VR game. I think that's an idea Blizzard can consider — I'd love to see a VR demo for Diablo.
