Show creator Vince Gilligan is teaming up with Sony’s PlayStation division to make a non-game virtual reality project based on the cult show. While both Gilligan and Sony are remaining mum on many of the details about it, Sony did confirm that the project won’t be releasing this year.
Sony Global game development boss Shawn Layden told TIME that the project is part of a larger push for virtual reality with mainstream pop culture.
