Although there's no official release date or release window for Sony's next-gen PlayStation VR2
, when it does launch it definitely sounds like it'll be a big thing. With Sony confirming that there will be over 20 major first-party and third-party titles on day one - including the Horizon VR: Call of the Mountain spin-off.
The revelation came as a part of the same business briefing
where we learned about PlayStation's big plans for PC
PlayStation VR2 is a major step up, so much so it makes the existing PSVR sound like a prototype. With custom motion-tracked controllers with haptics and adaptive triggers, a new 4K HDR headset (OLED based with 2000×2040 resolution per eye and 120hz support) with greater field-of-view and inside-out tracking, and a single-cord setup - it's going to be a huge for VR in general.
Sony unveiled the look and specs of PSVR2 earlier this year
, so our guess is that it's probably on track for a 2023 launch. "Right now, there is a considerable amount of money being spent on partnerships with independent and other third-party developers to secure a considerable pipeline of attractive VR content at the launch of PlayStation VR2,” PlayStation president Jim Ryan said during the recent briefing.
Here's hoping it's not too long before we get a good look at some of the games coming.
