The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR is a huge disappointment, as illustrated in our review – and one of its biggest issues is just how blurry it looks. While the game has been developed exclusively for PSVR2, it barely looks like a step-up from PSVR, with muddy, middling visuals and even the odd performance hiccup. It’s not the only problem with the game, but it’s a pretty big one!

To its credit, Supermassive has now released a statement, stressing that it’s investigating issues and is accepting bug reports from players. “So far, a potential cause of the blurring has been identified, with other issues still undergoing testing and reproduction,” it wrote on social media. It’s encouraging fans to share feedback through its Zendesk Portal.

Obviously we’re happy to hear the developer is committed to post-release support, although we’re still not sure how the game shipped with graphical issues like this – especially if it’s already identified a potential fix. We understand and appreciate game development is incredibly difficult, but you only get one shot at making a good first impression, and this release has blown it.
