Today, VR Education Holdings, the virtual reality (VR) company specialising in educational content such as Apollo 11 VR and Titanic VR has released its trading update for the end of 2019, with some interesting predictions for itself and the VR industry as a whole. These include a positive outlook for the company in 2020 as well as mention of a PlayStation VR successor.

Any mention of a PlayStation VR 2 is going to raise interest. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) recently confirmed 5 million PlayStation VR’s have been sold since 2016 and the current model will support the upcoming PlayStation 5 console. The trading update says: “2020 will see Sony release the PlayStation 5 and a new version of the PlayStation VR headset (PSVR), which will further expand the high-end VR user base; the Group intends to support this device with its current suite of showcase software.”

I think we might see a refresh of PSVR1, maybe with slightly improved tracking/controllers or maybe a 1440p lenses to take advantage of the massive power advantage of PS5. Then in 2-3 more years, I see a full-on PSVR2 to sit alongside PS5 Pro.

We already know it's not coming alongside PS5:


Mallinson seems satisfied with how PlayStation VR rolled out several years after the PlayStation 4 was on the market. The current PSVR will be PS5-compatible, which means a new headset isn't necessary right away. And that could mean Sony waits to debut a new headset for a while. "There's no reason for us to coincide it with a new console. From the point of view of the consumer, to be bombarded with many many things -- oh, you have to buy this, you have to buy that -- is a message that we don't want to send. In some ways, it's good to have a little breathing space between those things."
