Sony Losing Faith in PS VR2

Sony appears to be losing faith in its PS VR2 headset, according to a report from Android Central. The Japanese company is reportedly planning to cut back on spending for VR game development, with only two projects currently in the works—both of which face a high likelihood of cancellation.

Evidence of Sony’s waning interest in PS VR2 is indirectly supported by the closure of London Studio, which had previously developed the well-received VR shooter Blood & Truth for the original PS VR. Despite their successful release, the studio was not spared from being shut down, indicating that Sony no longer sees value in funding VR-focused developers.

Additionally, the sequel to Astro Bot does not support PS VR2, even though Astro Bot Rescue Mission was a notable title for the original VR headset in 2018. Given these developments, Android Central speculates that Sony may shelve further support for PS VR2 until more favorable conditions arise.

In a bid to salvage the product, Sony has introduced a $60 PS VR2 adapter for PC. However, this adapter significantly limits the headset’s capabilities compared to its performance on the PS5, making it a less attractive option for users.

For American readers, this shift in Sony’s strategy suggests that the future of PS VR2 is uncertain, with potential delays in support and development until the market for VR gaming sees more promising growth.
