The news came from Metro GameCentral, who talked with Criterion General Manager, Matt Webster, who said: "There is no VR. At some point we could sit down and spend a good number of hours talking about where VR needs to get to in order to work with that, because in something like this you're doing the job of a fighter pilot. And in the real-world that has a significant physiological effect on you, which would dramatically limit the audience".

Webster continued: "But making the VR demo absolutely informed the work we're doing now. So there's a lot of the VR mission's soul in Starfighter Assault".

Star Wars Battlefront II drops on November 17 for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
