It's Avive! VR-Focused Garry's Mod Sequel Confirmed

What the Rust guys might do next

VR almost certainly needs a killer app if it's to spread beyond monied game-fans. Facebook have probably got something up their sleeves for that there Oculus Rift, but as for the Vive, I do wonder if Garry Newman's talk of a VR-focused follow-up to his monster-selling Garry's Mod [official site] could be the mega-toy it needs.

Newman spilled the beans in an interview with PCGamesN about the making of his Source-based creativity toy, which is now a frightening 11 years-old. It's sold six million copies, most of which were in the second half of its life, and doesn't appear to be going away any time soon.

"We wouldn't raise the price now, I mean we're kind of working on a sequel, so it'd be stupid to the raise the price, really," Newman revealed. He didn't go much into detail, as "it's early days", but did suggest it won't be a straight sequel.

"We're looking at having more VR stuff in it - that’s the big point of it. And it won't be called Garry’s Mod 2.”

Garry-who-made-Rust's Mod 2 it is, then.
