A new report from Bloomberg suggests that PlayStation VR2 is currently under production.

Takashi Mochizuki is reporting for Bloomberg that Sony has begun production of PlayStation VR2. The PSVR2 headset is expected to launch in 2023, and the Bloomberg report suggests that it may have a target of two million units.

According to Bloomberg’s source, mass production of PlayStation VR2 headsets started last month and has reportedly not yet been affected by supply chain constraints.

It’s reportedly planned that the ongoing shortage of PS5 consoles is expected to be somewhat improved by early 2023, with Sony hoping the PlayStation VR2 release will spur on sales of both the headset and the console.

Sony said earlier this year that it will have more than 20 games ready for the launch of PlayStation VR2.

“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,” SIE president Jim Ryan said in May.

Sony revealed PSVR2 in January 2022. We have since learned that the new VR headset sports a 4K HDR OLED display with a resolution of 2000×2040 for each eye. In addition, it has a haptic response system, eye-movement tracking, and controller movement tracking without the need for an external camera.
