Sony also notes that the PVSR 2 will include 4 cameras on the headset and a controller-tracking IR camera for per eye tracking. "Your movements and the direction you look at are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera," Sony notes in the blog post.
In addition to new information on the PSVR 2, Sony also announced one of the first new games confirmed to run on the next-gen headset: Horizon Call of the Mountain, which is being co-developed by Guerrilla Games and Firesprite Games – the latter of which was acquired by PlayStation last September. No additional details were made available Call of the Mountian as of yet, but Sony says the game is "being built specifically for PSVR2 and will open the doors for players to go deeper into the world of Horizon."
While Sony did not reveal when the PSVR 2 will be available, rumors suggest the company is targeting a Holiday 2022 release.
