Update - Resident Evil 7 VR Mode is a Timed PSVR Exclusive

A box shot of Resident Evil 7 suggests that it's VR mode will only be a 12-month exclusive.

Update: A Capcom representative has told us that "Capcom has not confirmed any other VR formats at this time."

Original Story: When we played the VR mode of Resident Evil 7 at Tokyo Game Show, we asked Capcom if the game would ever find its way onto non-PlayStation VR headsets. At the time, we were simply told that it is launching only on the PS VR. Now, a picture posted by the official Resident Evil 7 Facebook page (since deleted) is suggesting that the PS VR exclusivity deal will only last a year.

NeoGAF and reddit users nabbed the image before it disappeared. You can see it to the right. While the top right corner does indeed say "PlayStation VR exclusive," the fine print in the bottom left corner states "Exclusive to PlayStation VR for 12 months."

So what does this mean? Resident Evil 7 will be released on the PC and Xbox One alongside the PS4, and since it already has a perfectly good VR mode built for it, we can probably expect support for PC headsets such as the Vive and the Oculus Rift, as well as the VR headset Microsoft may or may not be working on, in the future.

We've reached out to Capcom for clarification.
