Vertigo Games, developers behind Arizona Sunshine, has announced that it will be delaying its follow up VR title After The Fall. The decision has come due to the studio needing more time. This means that the PSVR, Oculus Quest 2, and PC VR versions of After The Fall will launch later this year. However, owners of the original Oculus Quest will have to wait longer with that version now not expected until 2022. Vertigo Games’ Creative Director Richard Stitselaar released the following statement.

Announced back in 2019, After the Fall has been a long time coming, and was originally expected in 2020. Then it was expected to release this summer instead. After The Fall will hopefully be worth the wait, as it is a good four years since Arizona Sunshine arrived on PSVR in 2017. That title was one of the early highlights of the burgeoning VR market, and at the time we said:
If you’re serious about PlayStation VR and love first person shooters, Arizona Sunshine is a no-brainer. Mowing down mobs of the undead is immensely satisfying with a great spread of weapons and plenty of opportunities to have some fun. The campaign is well-paced, supplying small but welcome diversions to break up the action with little morsels of story here and there. At £33, some players will naturally want more bang for their buck, but the quality of content on offer here is fantastic. With the bar set even higher than before, it will be interesting to watch how developers try to emulate and improve upon Arizona Sunshine.
