Rumor: PlayStation VR2 to Launch in Q1 2023 - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 28 February 2022 / 1,702 Views
Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Jim Ryan earlier this year confirmed the next-generation virtual reality headset from PlayStation will be called PlayStation VR2 and last week revealed the design for the headset.
What Sony has yet to announce is the release date for PlayStation VR2. YouTube channel PSVR Without Parole, who leaked details about PSVR2, claims the next-generation VR headset and controllers will launch in the first quarter of 2023.
The YouTube channel claims that the ongoing semiconductor shortages has lead Sony to want to have a decent amount of stock available for PSVR2 at launch, which is why it isn't launching in Holiday 2022.
This should be treated as a rumor until an official announcement is made.
