During Sony’s Business Segment Briefings for 2022, the company confirmed that PlayStation VR 2 features over 20 major games at launch. These PlayStation VR 2 games include major first-party games from PlayStation and third-party games from participating partners. One of these games is Horizon: Call of the Mountain, which was revealed at CES 2022.
Sony also recapped information about PlayStation VR 2 in the briefing. PS VR 2 features new ergonomic Sense controllers with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers akin to the DualSense controller. A multitude of features are being integrated with PS VR 2 such as 4K HDR support, foveated rendering, new sensory features, and much more. In addition, the PS VR 2 headset is streamlined with a single cord to simplify setup and ease-of-use.
Sony did not share a release date for PS VR 2 at the briefing. The company confirmed is spending a “considerable amount” to secure the launch lineup of games. These funds are being spent for partnerships with 3rd party developers including indies. The launch lineup will be announced when ready.
A Summer State of Play could reveal new games coming to PS5 and some launch games for PS VR 2. Sony has yet to announce their plans for this summer, but we expect the company to do so soon. Summer 2022 is filled with gaming showcases such as Summer Game Fest and Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase this June.
