    According to XR Hardware Analyst Brad Lynch, the PSVR 2 is reportedly going in mass production soon.

    Specifically, Lynch tweeted that Chinese manufacturer Goertek will be in charge of producing PSVR 2, according to his source named 黑毛警长008 — a Chinese supply chain analyst.

    If this report is accurate, then we can probably see a mid-late 2022 release for PlayStation’s next-generation VR platform.

    Aside from this report, PlayStation has also recently confirmed the name PlayStation VR2 at CES 2022, and revealed new details about the new headset and controllers.

    In case you missed the said reveal, the PSVR 2 controller includes the following features:

    • Adaptive Triggers – Each controller will include an adaptive trigger button similar to the DualSense’s L2 and R2 triggers.
    • Haptic Feedback – Much like the DualSense, the PSVR 2 controller will let players enjoy enhanced vibration which can mimic different textures and other feedback.
    • Finger Touch Detection – The controller will be able to detect fingers without any pressing, meaning players will be able to make more natural gestures during gameplay.
    • Tracking – The controller will be tracked by the VR headset itself instead of needing a camera.
    • Action Buttons and Analog Sticks – Each controller has an analog stick, two face buttons, a shoulder, and a trigger button. The left and right controller will also have the Create and Share button, respectively.

    If the PSVR 2 does indeed go into mass production soon and gets a 2022 release, here’s hoping that it will be easier to find than the PS5. After all, PS5 supply is still not high enough to meet demand.

    [UPDATE: January 5 – Added CES 2022 details]
