PlayStation VR2: all available and forthcoming games

Here’s the current list of what owners of Sony’s virtual reality system can play now, plus what they can look forward to

Sony’s PS VR2 is nearing 6 months of availability with around 60 games already out for it, while more than 80 games are in active development and due to be released over the next 18 months or so. (Image: Smilegate)

So PlayStation VR2, Sony’s virtual reality system designed specifically for the PS5, has been out for almost five months now and it’s probably fair to say that it hasn’t taken the world by storm… yet. The company has not revealed how many PS VR2 units has been able to sell since February, but it’s steadily releasing information about the most important part of the equation that could help its product succeed: software support.

See, PS VR2 itself is pretty amazing and perfectly capable of delivering exciting, next-gen virtual reality experiences, but the quality, quantity and variety of games designed for the system will ultimately decide whether consumers decide to invest in it or not. What’s more, it’s AAA games exclusively developed for the new PlayStation VR – i.e. not VR games already released in the past or games being released on PS VR2 along with other VR platforms – that will work as system sellers for it, as it has always been the case with consumer entertainment products.

The launch line-up Sony has been able to secure for PS VR2 was admittedly one of the most impressive in recent memory regardless of system or price point: no less than 43 different titles were available on day one and some of those are true highlights of what the PS VR2 can do when used creatively. Gran Turismo 7, Horizon: Call of the Mountain, Resident Evil Village and The Last Clockwinder remain among those highlights as of this writing. This is the initial list in full:

Horizon: Call of the Mountain is still one of the main attractions of PS VR2 in the eyes of PlayStation fans who have followed Sony’s action RPG series on the PS4/PS5. There’s a lot to like here. (Image: Sony)

Since early March up until the second week of July – when this story got published – these are the games released for the new PlayStation VR. Not an awful lot, not any true system sellers among them, but some quality additions to the growing library of Sony’s latest VR system, such as Nock, C-Smash VRS, Humanity and Synapse. Here’s the full list of the PS VR2 games that came out since the system’s launch back in February:

Sony had repeatedly stated in January that there are more than 100 different games under development for PS VR2, though, so a lot more titles are expected to be released until the end of the year and beyond. What follows is an ever-growing list of games that have been announced as PS VR2 releases at one point or another, although there are no release dates confirmed by their publishers or developers for most of them.

Smilegate’s CrossFire: Sierra Squad is one of the most anticipated forthcoming titles for the PlayStation VR2, due later out this year. Sony’s peripheral will have to offer a number of AAA productions of this type in order to succeed. (Image: Smilegate)

This is an impressive list indeed, even if most of these games are bound to be released at any point between “next month” and “2025”. Early impressions point to Firewall Ultra, Behemoth, Arizona Sunshine 2, Tiger Blade, The Foglands and Crossfire: Sierra Squad being particularly interesting, but VR games often have a way of defying or surpassing expectations… so a few surprises are certainly in order. Will PS VR2 be able to complete its first year in the market on a high note come February 2024? Here’s hope that Sony can pull this off!
