Sony has shared new details about its upcoming successor to the PSVR – PSVR 2 is appropriately named – during the CES 2022 press conference yesterday.
While it has revealed some major hardware details (it will boast 4K HDR, 110-degree field of view images with amazing rendering), there is little known about the headset’s release date or other details. more specific features.
In a tweet, Axios journalist Stephen Totilo notes that he asked Sony if the hardware will launch in 2022 – to which the company did not give a straight answer.
“I asked Sony if PSVR2 is coming out in 2022 and if it will be backward compatible with PSVR titles (which many people asked me yesterday). Neither was resolved on the date. yesterday,” he said in the tweet. “Sony’s PR department says they have nothing further to announce at the moment. So stay tuned…”
That means we can expect another PR blast from the company sooner rather than later. As we mentioned yesterday, the details were revealed yesterday line up with a report went online last year, claiming that the PSVR 2 will launch in holiday 2022 and will use OLED panels.
If Sony plans to launch the hardware in time for Christmas, that’s why the company will want to start the marketing cycle earlier, not later.
Along with the headset, Sony also announced the Horizon spin-off, developed by Guerrilla and Firesprite Games, Horizon Call of the Mountain, which will be a PSVR2 exclusive. A post on the PlayStation Blog says: “Created for PlayStation VR2, this unique experience is designed to drive hardware technology, innovation, and gameplay.” Immerse yourself in the world of Horizon. “
