A future for singleplayer FPS?

A future for singleplayer FPS?

Michael Plant question whether the evolution of singleplayer FPS shooters has become stagnant in the wake of multiplayer blockbusters like COD and Battlefield.

He does give this nod to the Oculus Rift:

Perhaps Palmer Luckey’s ‘Oculus Rift’ headset might go some way to making us feel integrated, certainly surveying the scene with a twist of the neck, rather than a flick of the thumb, would help. But ultimately it’s the gameplay that must evolve.

I think he is really underselling just how significant VR will be for the singleplayer FPS genre. It won't just be a great new way to experience the games, it's going to bring about the very innovation that Plant is longing for in the genre.
