Once Sony released the PlayStation 5, it was only a matter of time before the electronics giant confirmed its next-generation VR hardware to go along with it.

A little over a year after the PS5 hit the market, Sony has finally shed some light on the PSVR's successor.

To no one's surprise, Sony is naming the device PSVR 2.

We also learned a lot about the PSVR 2 at Sony's latest press conference at CES 2022. 

For example, the tech giant revealed that the name of the controllers, Sense Controllers.

Meanwhile, the PSVR 2 headset itself will come with an OLED display with a 2000 x 2040 per eye panel resolution and support 90Hz as well as 120Hz with a field of view of 110 degrees.

According to Sony's blog post, the PSVR 2 will come with 4 cameras on the headset and a controller-tracking IR camera.

In addition to new information about the PSVR 2, Sony also confirmed that it's already working on a new game for the incoming VR headset.

Horizon Call of the Mountain is a joint venture between Guerilla Games and Firesprite Games.

With the incoming PSVR 2 for the PS5, we have little doubt that Sony will work its usual magic once again.

Unfortunately, Sony did not reveal when audiences will get a chance to hear more about the PSVR 2 again.
