The second iteration of the PlayStation VR headset is coming to PlayStation 5, according to Sony executives.
Announced in a blog post, the latest details surrounding the once-rumored PlayStation VR headset have surfaced. The headset does not have an official name, only that it is PlayStation’s “next-generation VR system” for the PS5.
“We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input,” the blog reads. “One of the innovations we’re excited about is our new VR controller, which will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on great ergonomics.”
New Features In The Next PlayStation VR Device
Along with DualSense functionality and a new VR controller, the new VR system will connect to the PS5 with a single cord. It will also see improvements to tracking, input, Field of View, and resolution. Unfortunately, VR enthusiasts will have to wait a bit longer than they hoped. PlayStation’s new VR headset is not launching in 2021.
“There’s still a lot of development underway for our new VR system, so it won’t be launching in 2021. But we wanted to provide this early update to our fans, as the development community has started to work on creating new worlds for you to explore in virtual reality,” Sony says.
The PSVR has seen a healthy amount of support and success with standout titles to warrant its purchase. Acclaimed games like Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Tetris Effect, and Resident Evil 7 biohazard has kept the peripheral in high regard for fans.
