After Fast Travel Games teased working on multiple PlayStation VR2 videogames earlier this week, now Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has divulged something even more exciting. Details have emerged that PlayStation VR2 will have over 20 titles available at launch – whenever that might be.
The details come from a recent Sony investor presentation, with page 23 of the deck (seen above) clearly stating “20+ major first-party and third-party titles confirmed for PS VR2 launch.” So not even the launch window – which is usually the first 2-3 months after release – but on day one by the sound of it.
No further information was released regarding which videogames these might be although it was paired with an image of the previously announced spinoff Horizon Call of the Mountain from Firesprite and Guerilla Games. That’s not the only title that’s been teased for the upcoming headset. Medieval Dynasty, Pavlov Shack, Engram, Runner, as well as unnamed projects from Coatsink and Fast Travel Games.
“Right now, there is a considerable amount of money being spent on partnerships with independent and other third-party developers to secure a considerable pipeline of attractive VR content at the launch of PlayStation VR2,” said SIE president Jim Ryan, VGC reports. “That energy, that effort and that money will continue to grow as the installed base of PlayStation VR 2 headsets grows also.”
While it is certainly good that SIE is planning a strong lineup of games for PlayStation VR2’s launch, when that’ll take place is still unknown. PlayStation 5 is still suffering from supply chain issues making the console extremely difficult to get hold of. This is detailed on page 12 of the deck with PlayStation 4 outselling the PS5 in year 2 and that’s not expected to change until the PS5’s fourth year.
This likely means PlayStation VR2 won’t arrive until 2023 as several rumours have suggested.
That could very well change as the year goes on. For further updates keep reading gmw3.
