QA firm Testronic opens dedicated VR testing centre

Testronic has introduced a new unit focused solely on providing QA services for virtual reality titles.

The QA, localisation and compliance firm’s VR Test Centre will be based out of its Warsaw offices in Poland.

Leading the new division is QA vet Julian Mower, with the team said to already be working on its first project.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for games and the wider entertainment business, with VR literally becoming a reality,” said Mower.

“We’ve just returned from GDC where virtual reality was very much the theme of the show, with headsets being demonstrated, games being announced and, of course, Sony announcing the launch details for PlayStation VR.

“But this new medium is bringing with it new QA challenges. Testing VR games goes way beyond checking for bugs and compatibility; there’s a huge focus on the user experience.

“Like most publishers and developers, Testronic has been working on VR strategies for some time now, and the opening of our new VR Test Centre represents the culmination of research into this exciting new world.”
