PlayStation VR 2: PlayStation 5 Virtual Reality Would Arrive at the End of 2022

Sony’s VR headset: PlayStation VR 2 would employ Samsung’s OLED panels, company sources say.


PlayStation could publish its next-generation virtual reality headset, known at the moment as PlayStation VR 2, in late 2022. This is stated by Bloomberg, based on sources close to the company, as part of a report on the use of LCD panels in virtual reality products. Officially announced just a few months ago, the so-called PSVR 2 promises to offer next-generation immersion alongside PlayStation 5. With the new VR controllers with haptic feedback, they will extend the experience.

Back to the Bloomberg article, the aforementioned media affirms that Sony’s new VR helmet would use Samsung OLED panels, this always based on its sources: “The Japanese console giant has sold more than 5 million units of the PSVR original, published in 2016, and they plan to publish its successor in the Christmas period next year, “they say.

In other words, at the moment, PlayStation expects PSVR 2 to hit stores by the end of 2022. Although a year and a half of pandemic have taught us something, it is to never trust the planned dates, since they are subject to unexpected changes in project planning. Beyond this information, UploadVR published another article last month where, always based on their sources, they advanced some possible technical details of PlayStation VR 2. This medium speaks of a 4K resolution thanks to vented rendering and eye-tracking techniques, which allow reducing the image quality of the elements outside the field of vision for better performance.

For now, PlayStation continues to work on PSVR 2 with some secrecy, focusing its marketing and promotions on the PS5 catalogue for 2021. The next big release from PlayStation Studios is Horizon: Forbidden West, the open-world adventure that showed its first gameplay a few weeks ago.
