According to the publisher of VR games, PlayStation VR 2 will be released in 2020
Recently, rumors were actively discussed on the network that, in parallel with the PlayStation 5, the PlayStation VR model will also be updated. Now, rumors have shifted to confidence based on confirmation from the publisher Immersive VR Education (Apollo 11 VR and Titanic VR). The company released a financial report that mentions the new Sony headset.
The PlayStation VR is rightfully the status of the most successful premium virtual reality headset on the market. According to statistics, 5 million devices were sold. However, the main drawback of the PlayStation VR is that it never had the most advanced features, it attracted attention only with compatibility with the PlayStation 4. Now Sony will have to upgrade its VR technology in order to remain competitive.
“In 2020, Sony will release PlayStation 5 and a new version of the PlayStation VR headset (PSVR), which will further expand the high-end VR user base - the group intends to support this device with its current software package,” the Immersive VR Education Ltd said in a report.
In March 2019, PlayStation Executive Director Dominic Mallinson announced that the company is considering releasing several PlayStation VR models of the second version, which will include new features such as wireless connectivity and eye tracking.
It is expected that the official announcement of the PlayStation 5 will be released in February - most likely at the same time the company will also reveal information about the new version of PlayStation VR.
