The various announcements made by PlayStation during its State of Play this night gave many clues to the release of PSVR 2, through the calendar of upcoming games.
With the State of Play airing tonight and the many announcements from sonythe opportunity was given to us to know more about the next version of the virtual reality headset from PlayStation, the PSVR 2. But the date has still not been revealed. However, many clues point to a release for early 2023 or after the holiday season in 2022.
PSVR 2: a release for early 2023?
The PSVR 2 will be released with around twenty games in its catalog, Jim Ryan announced recently. We can decently believe it, especially when we know that with a simple showcase this night, five titles have already been made official: on the Capcom side, Resident Evil Village and the new remake of Resident Evil 4 will have VR support. If the first did not give a release date, the second is announced for the March 24, 2023.
Then, the new Horizon Call of the Mountain, but also No Man’s Sky (already available in PCVR and PSVR) and Chapter 2 of The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners. He too was announced in 2023 on PSVR 2, and end of 2022 on PSVR. A calendar that again seems to steer the release of the new helmet towards the beginning of next year.
Also, a few days ago, an analyst revealed that the hardware assembly line will start in the second half of 2022, arguably setting the stage for the first quarter of 2023.
As a reminder, at the start of the year Sony unveiled the design of the PSVR 2 and then of its controllers, the PlayStation VR2 Sensewhich will also have haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
On the hardware side, PSVR2 technology will bring eye tracking, 3D Tempest audio technology and “headset feedback”, which allows you to feel reactive vibrations during the game via the headset. The two 2000×2040 OLED optics for a display in 4K HDR up to 120fps, and an FOV of 110 degrees.
