The PlayStation VR 2 is reportedly going to start mass production in the second half of this year, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Twitter.
Sony’s next-generation virtual reality headset will see about 1.5 million shipments during this time, and the launch itself may happen in the first quarter of 20-23 depending on how development goes on its planned line up of games.
Elsewhere, Ming-Chi Kuo expects PSVR 2 to have a successful launch due to the previously-confirmed lineup of 20 launch games, and believes that Sony will be able to accelerate development of AAA VR games thanks to Sony’s position and resources in the games industry.
The most notable hardware upgrade for PS VR2 is to start using optical modules. PS VR1 doesn’t equip with optical modules. PS VR2 adopts six optical modules (four 720P IR cameras and two eye-tracking cameras). Genius is the leading lens supplier.
PSVR 2 has yet to attract a release date.
