Sony confirms that PSVR2 will be out by early 2023

The release date of the PSVR2 coincides with the increased effort by Sony to release more PS5 units in late 2022.


The original PlayStation VR first came out in October 2016, almost three years after the PS4 hit store shelves in November 2013. Now, it appears that the PSVR2 will follow the same timeline.

Sony has set up Horizon: Call of the Mountain as the first big title to hit the PSVR2.

According to Sony, the PSVR2 will come out in "early 2023."

What's interesting about Sony's latest announcement is that it came with little fanfare. We didn't get a State of Play or even a PlayStation Blog post. Instead, all Sony did was post a photo of the PSVR2 on Instagram, saying "Coming early 2023." This is in line with analyst claims back in May.

It will be interesting to see how the Resident Evil 4 Remake will play in VR considering it's not a first-person shooter.

The Japanese tech giant has been so secretive about the PSVR2, so it's nice to hear some official news straight from the horse's mouth. Hopefully, we'll get a State of Play dedicated to the PSVR2 soon. But, if not, we'll have to make do with the June State of Play.

In addition to the announcement of the Resident Evil 4 Remake, we also got news about all the PSVR2 games confirmed for the incoming VR headset. Plus, we also got a trailer for Horizon Call of the Mountain, a first-party VR title by Guerilla Games and Firesprite.

As far as virtual reality headsets go, the PSVR2 finds itself in an elite company. It's arguably the most promising VR console coming soon with an OLED screen resolution that's double the original PSVR (2000x2040 per eye) as well as new motion controllers that feature haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and finger-tracking.
