There are as many popular virtual reality systems as there are standard gaming consoles, which means that developers will have to take longer to ensure games launch on all platforms. This has been the reason for a number of delays in games, with Paw Print Games and vTime’s title Border Patrol VR being delayed to Feb. 8, 2024, for this reason.
Publisher Team17 made the announcement via a brief press release sent out earlier this morning, stating that the game is delayed until next year. It’s unclear what systems are finished and what may be keeping the title from releasing on its scheduled date across all platforms. The game was only recently announced, meaning that players haven’t had too long to anticipate its release.
Border Bots VR looks to largely follow similar limited area mechanics in a robot-filled VR city that seems to mix virtual reality with Papers, Please, and similar games. There is a lot more detail in this title, with robots that seem to be fully voiced with unique personalities. Players will be in charge of letting robots pass or sending them away.
The title will likely be a great addition to players who like virtual reality games that simulate real-world jobs, with Border Bots VR taking a more harmless spin on the genre by replacing the people with robots that still have personalities.
