Project Morpheus release date: Sony to roadtest headset at EGX 2015, VR headset support behind delay of 'No Man's Sky'?


Gamers can now have a free, in-game peek at what Sony’s Project Morpheus has to offer during the EGX event taking place in Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

This is because, reported, Sony will be bringing in the virtual reality headset, together with PlayStation 4 game titles for attendees to try out in their event stand in the four days of the event, which is scheduled to take place between September 24 and 27.

Aside from Project Morpheus, the article said, attendees can try out Black Ops 3, Star Wars Battlefront, Street Fighter V, Need for Speed and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

In other news, Youth Health Mag said, there are rumors that state that Project Morpheus is delaying the release of Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky to ensure full compatibility with the VR headset that Sony is developing to compete with Microsoft’s Holo Lens and the Oculus Rift.

According to the Movie Pilot, No Man’s Sky is the “ideal” game with which Sony could attract the necessary attention to its VR headsets. Thus, it only makes sense that the Japanese tech giant will want the launch of No Man’s Sky to take place when the developer has ensured full Project Morpheus support.

It’s therefore possible that No Man Sky’s will not be released this year, and will instead hit the markets next year.

The release of No Man’s Sky, however, is a date that not even Hello Games’ Sean Murray could specify with certainly. Last year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker that they are not rushing the game due to the amount of anticipation that’s riding on it.

“We are this super-small team, and we are making this ridiculously ambitious game, and all we are going to do in telling people when it is going to come out, probably, is disappoint them,” Murray had said.
