Daniel Ahmad - a verified analyst working for Niko Partners - is the source of this information. The said company specializes in the study of the gaming market in Asia.

Ahmad says that Sony is targeting a late 2022 release, but doesn't rule out it being delayed until 2023 due to issues with availability of parts. Still, there is a good chance of avoiding any delays, as the conglomerate started preparing for the PlayStation VR2 debut as early as last February.

Games for VR2 have been under development since last year. According to analysts, Sony will launch a good mix of AAA games and social applications using virtual reality. Seventeen studios owned by Sony are expected to work on VR games. The first game announced is Horizon: Call of the Mountain.

The original PlayStation VR sold more than 6 million units. About 5% of PS4 owners have purchased the device. Recently the popularity of virtual reality has grown significantly, mainly because of games, so Sony is counting on the success of PS VR2. According to analysts, the key to fulfilling these plans will be a large range of games, a low price, and the high quality of the device itself.

Currently, the VR market is dominated by Meta (formerly Facebook) with its Oculus headset. On PC virtual reality seems to be in retreat. So we are curious to see how Sony will do with their new gadget.
