Sony is confident about PSVR 2 support.
There’s good news if you’re planning on purchasing a PSVR 2 at launch. Sony has announced that its next-generation virtual reality headset will ship with over 20 titles.
There will appear to be enough to play at launch for PSVR 2, with first-party and third-party games revealed during an investor relations briefing(opens in new tab).
However, if you’re looking for new information, you won’t find it here. Although Sony didn’t mention any new titles, the presentation graphic does contain Horizon Call of the Mountain, which was generally expected to be the launch title.
“Right now, there is a significant amount of money being spent on relationships with independent developers,” PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said in this briefing (thanks, VGC(opens in new tab)).
“That enthusiasm, that effort, and that money will continue to expand as the installed base of PlayStation VR 2 headset grows as well,” Ryan added. Aside from that, this briefing outlined Sony’s PC gaming objectives, investment plans for new and existing IPs, and growth forecasts for the remainder of the fiscal year.
What games will be available on PSVR 2?
There haven’t been many official PSVR 2 games yet, but we’re getting closer. During CES 2022, Sony announced Horizon Call of the Mountain as the first PSVR 2 game. You won’t play as Aloy in this VR spin-off from Guerrilla Games and Firesprite, but you will meet her alongside other returning characters.
Since then, few details have been revealed, however we do know that Among Us VR will be available on both PSVR and PSVR 2. Coatsink just stated that a Jurassic World-themed survival horror game called “Jaffa” will be released at launch. We don’t expect a version of Jurassic World Aftermath, which was more of a stealth game than a horror game when it was published on Oculus Quest.
Aside from that, we’re aware of a few unannounced titles from Fast Travel Games, nDreams, and First Contact Entertainment. We’re guessing Sony is planning a major PSVR 2 presentation to show off these new games, but when that will happen is unknown. Still, given the gradual drip-feed of PSVR 2 news we’ve recently received, let’s hope it won’t be too long.
