"We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation. We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input. It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience."

Release Date

At the moment, all we know is that the PSVR won't be launching for the PS5 in 2021.

Although this is a shame, it isn't the most surprising information considering this was a pretty unexpected announcement.
