Release Date + New Leaks

  • Backward compatibility for the PSVR headset does not appear to be part of the plan, though Sony is probably to remaster several more key titles. Besides that, it appears that the new headset will be out in early 2022. Many players expect the NGVR to come out by January or February.
  • Sony is also attempting to move aside from the VR experiences that are prevalent with the current headset with the PSVR 2, focusing instead on AAA titles that could be played both with and without VR. Some distinctive PSVR games may be back for the next-generation headset as well.
  • Sony intends to modify this, as per leaks, by significantly increasing funding in high VR games. New AAA releases for the PlayStation 5 will be in both VR and traditional formats, giving gamers the option to play in either mode.
