VR isn’t off the table entirely, however it most probably won’t happen until at least after the game is released. Last I heard, the engine does actually support VR in a limited sense, and one of the devs was experimenting with it. However, it all comes down to how much time it would take to implement it fully with the engine, as well as how long it would take to remake an interface for VR. As it stands now, VR is a luxury item that can’t really happen at the moment.
Hopefully that will change when the game goes to gold.
