"We've been trying. We were worried about VR, but well, there's nothing we can do about VR. We've got the VR dev kits, but...." Mamais told OnMSFT." In VR, some stuff would work, but, I suppose, it's not really feasible yet. You're still not making a lot of VR money. It's really niche and experimental, yes. I'd love to. I like VR, but we still don't do anything about it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to be one of 2020's biggest game releases, if not the biggest, and it's heartening to know that at least the team experimented with the concept of virtual reality help. It's not like we were waiting, either with bated breath. The developers of Cyberpunk 2077 told the press back in early 2019 that VR was not a problem before the release of the game due to improvements in game design, and it seems nothing has changed as the game moves into the latter stages of production.
Cyberpunk 2077’s release date was initially scheduled for this April but has since been delayed until September 17, 2020. CD Projekt Red told fans that it requires “more time to finish playtesting, fixing, and polishing” in order for Cyberpunk 2077 to become its “crowning achievement.”

It's finally here after 8 long years of waiting. Finally, CD Projekt RED's sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is here. But can you play the VR game?
The short reply is no. There is no form of VR support in the game currently, but there are some alternatives.
Back in June, CDPR company president Adam Kiciński said that although it would not be difficult to incorporate rudimentary VR support, there are some issues involved.
"When we factor in game design, the dilemma becomes more complex. There are important changes that must be taken into consideration when working on a product unique to the VR. Our current focus is on the Cyberpunk PC and console versions, so right now we're not going in that direction.
So we don't expect any sort of official VR support anytime soon, but that doesn't mean that you won't be able to use other methods to play the VR game. We're expecting someone to eventually create a VR mod for Cyberpunk, similar to other open world games like GTA V. Before that, using an app like Bigscreen or Virtual Desktop, you'll still be able to play the PC version of the VR game on a flatscreen monitor. Alternatively, you can play Cyberpunk 2077 in VR on an Oculus Search using Google Stadia.
With details on new mods and some way to play the game entirely or partially in VR, we will keep this article updated.

Cyberpunk VR Mods for 2077
There are no mods explicitly designed for Cyberpunk 2077 at the time of writing that add VR support. However, we wouldn't be shocked if anyone created a mod close to last year's GTA V mod. Keep an eye out.
However, there is another alternative called VorpX instead of specifically-developed mods.

Cyberpunk VorpX 2077 for PC VR
VorpX is a 3D VR driver that adds support for 3D graphics and head tracking to allow you to look around in non-VR games. Settings such as FOV, field depth, and more, however, mean that your mileage can differ from game to game.
It doesn't always work perfectly and it can cause nausea for those who are sensitive, but before a specifically designed mod or another solution comes along, it's the next best thing for PC VR support for now. For Cyberpunk or any Vorpx-supported game, there's also no motion controller support, so you'll always have to use a keyboard and mouse or a wired controller.
VorpX is constantly updated with new release profiles and Cyberpunk is no exception. Shortly after release, VorpX's developer Ralf added a profile for the game.
With Cyberpunk, we haven't tried VorpX yet so we can't personally vouch for it but some users' anecdotal reports say that the game works pretty well for a VorpX solution.
To run Cyberpunk and VorpX, you will need a PC and a PC VR headset (or a Quest running Link) to play VR. VorpX is also not free-it is around $40-and can be bought here.
On this forum post, you can learn more about VorpX's Cyberpunk 2077 implementation.

On Quest and Quest 2 Playing through Google Stadia
Cyberpunk 2077 is available entirely on Stadia, and on Quest 2, you can play Stadia games with a little sideloading.
If you follow this guide, you can read about how to sideload a version of Chromium onto your Quest headset that allows you to run Stadia and play Cyberpunk 2077 on a VR flatscreen without the need for a gaming PC or hardware. In order to connect to your Quest, the only other thing you would need is a Bluetooth game controller.
Here you can read the complete guide.

Bigscreen or Virtual Desktop Use
The next best thing will be playing the PC version of the VR game on a wide flatscreen monitor without VR support or VR modifications for Cyberpunk 2077. Digital Desktop and Bigscreen are the two applications that are most appropriate for this.
Although Bigscreen is free and Virtual Desktop costs $19.99, you will probably get your money's worth with the latter if you're serious about playing the game on a flatscreen in VR. Although Bigscreen supports remote desktop functions, it's not the primary focus of the app. Virtual Desktop, on the other hand, is a full app built to monitor and communicate with your desktop from inside VR seamlessly. We recommend that you give Virtual Desktop a try if you have the money, and it also has several more options to fine tune the experience to fit best for your network.
Updating virtual desktops
You'll need to install a remote streamer client to use your VR desktop with either program, no matter which one you select. The download for the Bigscreen one can be found here and the Virtual Desktop one here.
Launch Bigscreen/Virtual Desktop on your headset and allow remote streaming with your PC after you have installed your respective streamer application and it is open and ready to go.
Simply launch Cyberpunk 2077 and get played once you have your desktop pulled up in VR! You won't be able to use your VR controllers for the game, so you'll always have to have your keyboard and mouse or controller nearby. It's worth noting. After that, before we get a VR mod, you should be all set—enjoy the next best choice.
