PS VR2: When does it release?

Best answer: Probably 2022. While Sony hasn’t announced an official date yet, rumors point to a release this year.

PS VR2: Back to the future

Since the 2016 release of the original PlayStation VR, Sony has been working hard to build a proper ecosystem for PlayStation gamers who want to get a unique perspective of their games.

During a series of PS5 announcements, including a recent one at CES 2022, Sony revealed the official name and specs for the second-generation PSVR — built exclusively for the PS5. Touting some impressive new features and technology, PS VR2 will be among the best accessories for PS5 when it launches. Luckily for PS5 owners looking for a next-generation VR experience, the wait may not be too long. While Jim Ryan wasn’t clear on exactly when we should expect the PS VR2, the implication certainly seems to be 2022 at this point.
