The Witness might receive Oculus Rift support

Jonathan Blow's being a tease

The Witness, Jonathan Blow's follow-up to the universally well-received Braid, is definitely a highly anticipated game. It's been in the works for quite some time, and the hype surrounding it has sort of just kept building. It will be a PlayStation 4 timed-exclusive, and as such, it might be the guinea pig for some new technology on the Sony platform.

Blow took to The Witness' website recently to post a couple of teaser images under the caption "What could it mean??" The look of the photos lends itself to the theory that the game might have Oculus Rift or some sort of virtual reality peripheral support. Further backing that thought process is the fact that Blow named the files "vr1" and "vr2".

The Witness seems like it would be a great title for Sony to test the waters for a virtual reality headset. If these rumors are true, The Witness might end up as an even more remarkable and monumental title than it was already shaping up to be.
