After various rumors and speculation, Sony has confirmed that a PSVR A dedicated next generation for the PlayStation 5 is already in development. This new experience not only will improve every possible aspect of the model we saw more than four years ago, but will integrate some of the DualSense functions. However, there is still a long way to go to see this device in action.
According to Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President of Platform Planning and Management, the development team continues to work hard on this new PSVR, therefore, we won’t see this virtual reality headset in 2021, and no release date or window is provided at this time.
However, the first details provided reveal that the new PSVR will improve “everything from resolution and field of view, to tracking and player actions”. Similarly, only one cable will be necessary to connect to the PS5, thus simplifying setup and improving ease of use. This is what Nishino mentions about it:
“Today I am pleased to share that our next generation virtual reality system is coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience with dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity. Gamers will feel a greater sense of presence and will be further immersed in their gaming worlds once they put on the new headset.
There is still a lot of development in progress for our new VR system, so it won’t be released in 2021. But we wanted to bring this early update to our fans as the development community has started work on creating new worlds for that you explore in virtual reality ”.
Finally, mention is made of a new control for the PSVR, which will make use of some of the DualSense functions, and will take an ergonomic approach. Although details are not revealed at the moment, it is likely that we will see adaptive triggers in this new peripheral.
We hope to have more information about the new PSVR in the future. Hopefully we’ll see a release in 2022.
