PSVR 2 Release Date

Sony has officially confirmed that the PSVR 2 is on the way, however, no release date has been announced just yet.

While a 2021 release date looks unlikely, we think we could see the headset, delays dependant, later in 2022.

This coming year or two looks to be a big one for potential VR and AR headsets as it's not only PSVR 2 but also Meta Quest 3 could be making its way to us alongside the confirmed Project Cambria and also Apple's own AR headset that is tipped to be announced in Q4 2022.

PSVR 2 Latest News

Recently, we caught a glimpse of what looks like a patent for the PSVR 2, including a technical drawing of the headset.

While patents aren't necessarily indicative of a final product, the diagram itself did show a more streamlined VR headset than we've seen before from Sony.

While we didn't get to see much in terms of potential technical specs, the recent sighting was a far cry away from some of the Oculus Quest Pro leaks that we've encountered...asides from these apparent video tutorials that is.

What Else Do We Know About PSVR 2?

At the moment, information is a little thin on the ground, however, there are some rumours that are circulating around the display and lenses in particular.

Reportedly, PSVR 2 may feature an OLED display with a 2000 x 2040 resolution (per eye), and it might feature a 110 degree field of view, according to an August report from a private developer conference.

There's also a question about whether the PSVR 2 headset will be wireless or not. A blog post back in February reads that we can expect it to 'connect to PS5 with a single cord', which will be an improvement from the previous iteration, but whether it will be completely wireless is still up in the air.

In addition, there's also been a rumour suggesting that PSVR 2 will be backwards compatible with original PSVR games, and given that the PS5 is fully compatible with the older PSVR headset, this may make some sense, although this of course up in the air.

For all the latest on PSVR 2, be sure to check back in with us soon.
