PS5 VR Launch Date: Rumours Suggest Sony's Planning A Late 2022 Release

Details are slowly emerging about Sony's plans for their PSVR successor on PS5. Officially confirmed back in February, we got a first look at the new controller a month later and though we've yet to see any games, Bloomberg has now issued a report stating it's likely to launch in late 2022.

While Sony previously revealed that it wouldn't launch in 2021, this source states that they're "aiming to release the successor in the holiday period next year". Notably, Bloomberg also advised the PS5 headset would use OLED panels from Samsung Display.

If true, this would match up with previous reports from UploadVR, who confirmed the PS5 headset features 4K resolution at 4000x2040. Furthermore, it'll likely include gaze tracking capable of foveated rendering, lens adjustment support and haptic feedback as a means of reducing motion sickness.

There's a lot we don't know about PS5 VR at this time but given Sony's sporadic updates so far, we're hopeful for another official announcement soon. As always, we'll keep you informed with any new developments as they happen.
