Sony Interactive Entertainment so far for 2022 has remained fairly conservative in releasing new details in regards to the PlayStation VR 2. Although excited fans did receive a full showcase of the headset this past February, President & CEO Jim Ryan confirmed there will be nearly two dozen games ready for its arrival. “20+ major first-party and third-party titles confirmed for PS VR2 at launch,” he shared in an investor briefing last month.
Additionally, the PlayStation VR 2 is to welcome an extra helping of AAA support this time around compared to the initial headset that the PlayStation firm shipped. Atop of that, fans can anticipate improvements such as OLED displays per eye alongside touch controls which will be featured on the new controllers that are bundled with the device.
During the PlayStation State of Play presentation, Sony Interactive Entertainment confirms that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution, Resident Evil 8, and No Man’s Sky are coming to PlayStation VR 2 with featured gameplay footage. You can watch each trailer in the respected videos below:

“To experience No Man’s Sky in PS VR was a minor miracle, such was the technical challenge we faced bringing an infinite seamless universe into the futuristic headset. Several years later, the technology has taken another major leap forward such that, now, we have the opportunity to immerse the player to a whole new level,” Hello Games founder Sean Murray shared for No Man’s Sky. “The power of PlayStation 5, coupled with the all-new PlayStation VR2 hardware, including the new Sense controllers, combine to take that sense of immersion and believability up by several major notches.
“The PS VR2 system is currently in development, and Resident Evil Village will be able to provide an even deeper immersive experience by taking full advantage of the vivid graphics possible with the headset’s 4K HDR display, PlayStation VR2’s eye tracking, PS5’s 3D Audio* and more,” Tsyoshi Kanada, Capcom Producer told for Resident Evil 8. “Soak in the gorgeous details of Dimitrescu Castle, from its beautiful chandeliers to the textures of its furnishings, In PSVR2, you’ll feel the castle’s inhabitants’ presence all the more as they stalk you through its hallways, and be prepared to get overwhelmed by its owner, Lady D…”
