With Resident Evil Village, The Walking Dead, Horizon and No Man’s Sky headlining, the PSVR catalog is once again enriched with great releases. But what players are waiting for is mostly PSVR2 news.

Games galore…but no support

In spite of Resident Evil 4 Remake Headline, The announcements put more emphasis on virtual reality with images of the VR edition of Resident Evil Village, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2, No Man’s Sky and finally Horizon: Call of the Mountain.
If all these games are already available on PSVR or should be released soon on Sony’s dedicated virtual reality headset, Some of these titles are planned for PSVR2 at an unspecified date. And for a good reason: Sony’s new headphones don’t have a release date yet. A situation caused, like the lack of console supplies, due to the component crisis.
