Dungeons & Dragons VR in Development

Resolution Games is developing a unique VR experience based on Dungeons & Dragons. The hugely popular role-playing IP is owned by Wizards of the Coast, and this collaboration will see the creators of Demeo bring the franchise to VR for the first time.

Following its 2021 release, Resolution Games’ Demeo garnered attention throughout the table top RPG (TTRPG) world. The game presents an approachable blend of dungeon exploration and turn-based tactics with friends. The game was reportedly inspired by a passion for Dungeons & Dragons within the team at Resolution Games.

“As anyone who’s played Demeo can guess, we’re incredibly huge fans of tabletop roleplaying games,” said Tommy Palm, founder and CEO of Resolution Games. “They have an unparalleled power to bring people together to create shared experiences, and that’s something we’ve tried to capture, too, with nearly every release in our library. Dungeons & Dragons offers one of the richest fantasy worlds that has ever been created. It only gets bigger with every new sourcebook and adventure. We’re beyond humbled to have the opportunity to work with such an incredible IP and look forward to sharing the first details of this new project in the future.”

“Resolution Games has a clear understanding of how to bring players together and capture the fun of tabletop gaming on digital platforms in an accessible way,” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. “They are an ideal partner to bring a new Dungeons & Dragons video game to life in VR and beyond. Dungeons & Dragons and our other world class gaming brands continue to attract amazing partners as we execute our strategy to grow our digital games portfolio through licensing and internal development.”

Dungeons & Dragons has seen numerous videogame releases over the years. From the critically acclaimed Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights, to the scrolling beat-’em-up Chronicles of Mystara. Planescape Torment to idle game Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms. The franchise is no stranger to digital adaptation.

The game that will result from this collaboration is slated for a future release. No further details are available at this time. Both Demeo and the second game in the franchise, Demeo Battles, are playable on PC and in VR. Demeo is also available on the PlayStation 5 and PSVR2. Whether or not this new game will follow the same release pattern is not yet known.
