Garry's Mod 2 is in development, won't be called Garry's Mod 2, will have VR support

Funny PC games

Facepunch Studios are working on a Garry's Mod Sequel, studio founder Garry Newman told PCGamesN in a recent interview - but don't you dare call it Garry's Mod 2.

Newman's comments on the sequel came when asked if he'd ever consider raising the price of the first game:

"We wouldn't raise the price now, I mean we’re kind of working on a sequel, so it’d be stupid to the raise the price, really. It’s early days. We’re looking at having more VR stuff in it - that’s the big point of it. And it won’t be called Garry’s Mod 2."

There were once some rumblings about Oculus support for Garry's Mod 1.0 before the studio quashed them. Or whatever one does to a rumbling in order to cease it. Analogies, eh? 

The comment came during an interview about the making of Garry's Mod, in which it also transpired that Newman was initially unsure whether to charge any money at all for it: 

"The price goes back to the original days. We decided to have it that cheap because when Valve originally asked if we wanted to put it on Steam I said no. I thought: who would pay for it? When we were first talking about price we thought $10. If we’d have priced it at $50 or $30, or even $20, I don’t think it’d have lasted ten years."

Well I'm intrigued! Honestly not a huge fan of Garry's mod 1, I own it, but every time I open it I get lost quick haha. I feel like there's a ton of potential there but it's bogged down by being technically a quirky mod.

I'm hoping that for this next version it concentrates more on easy access (and of course stability).

Bogged down as in I always feel like there are things you should be able to do, but can't, because it wasn't really built from the ground up as a content generation game, which is really what I'd like it to be (maybe I'm looking at it wrong?). In other words, a game where you can make your own mini-games within it. Which you can! I've seen it! But it feels like to do it is very hacky and full of workarounds, which is what fuels my assumption of how it's built.

The newer updates have gone a long way towards smoothing things but they're still working with a base that doesn't seem the greatest.

Looking forward to this I think. Played GMod so much in it's early stages. Played it a ton after Wiremod came out, but then just kind of lost interest. I hope the sequel removes lots of the limitations that GMod has.

After more than 2000 hours of garrys mod this just sounds epic ! Already knew that he would upgrade to source 2 but a fresh game means better code, more updates and overall more support and performance!

My Gmod wants me to re-install it but my startup disk is too low.

I kept putting things in the trash I don't need but it barely improved the number rate!
