Sony Announces Next-Gen PlayStation VR

The next PlayStation VR is underway, something a bit more befitting of the next-gen hardware piloted by the likes of the PlayStation 5. There’s no firm release date just yet, but Sony has specified that it is not coming in 2021.

Its blog post reads, “We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PSVR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system.”

There are a few titles that have yet to see the light of day on PSVR, chief among them is the long-awaited Half-Life sequel, a robust, triple-A, first-person-shooter. Perhaps, given the improvement in hardware and tech, Half-Life: Alyx will find its day on the PlayStation 5.


It’s not just the headset itself getting a neat power boost, nor just a new headset that utilizes the amped-up power of a PS5. Rather, Sony is also bringing with it brand new controllers, “One of the innovations we’re excited about is our new VR controller, which will incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on greater ergonomics.”

That likely means that the new VR controllers will take advantage of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. Feeling tension in guns, bows, and whatever else will certainly only add to the immersion when it comes to virtual reality, so it makes sense that Sony would bring forward those features from its normal controller. Let’s just hope they leave out the drift.

While Microsoft seems uninterested in the future of VR with Xbox, Sony ended its blog post, “With both PlayStation VR and the next-generation VR system we’re building, our commitment to virtual reality as a medium for games is stronger than ever. We look forward to sharing more details in the future!”
