PSVR 2 Won’t Launch Alongside PS5, Sony Suggests

May 28, 2019 / JAMIE FELTHAM

The last few months have really ramped up the speculation on the PSVR 2 front. First, Sony confirmed it was making a next-generation console that would support VR. Then, just last week, its head of R&D detailed what he expects to see in next-generation headsets. But we shouldn’t hold our breath for a true reveal anytime soon.Following last week’s report, Cnet followed up with Sony’s Dominic Mallinson. They covered a lot of the same ground, but Mallinson did say he didn’t expect PSVR 2 to launch alongside PS5. “There’s no reason for us to coincide it with a new console,” he explained. “From the point of view of the consumer, to be bombarded with many many things — oh, you have to buy this, you have to buy that — is a message that we don’t want to send. In some ways, it’s good to have a little breathing space between those things.”
