Sony doesn't seem to have any plans with PSVR and the upcoming PS5 right now. In a statement to UploadVR, the company announced that VR glasses are counted among the backward-compatible devices of the next-gen console and that no PS5 titles have yet been announced for PSVR. Buyers of Hitman 3, for example, have to be careful when the successor is released on January 20, 2021. The highlights of Part 3 include a PSVR mode with which the entire game – including its predecessors – can be experienced.
According to Sony, fans here have to purchase the PS4 version of Hitman 3 and then play the title on their PS5 with backwards compatibility. If you decide directly for the PS5 implementation, you will have to do without the feature. However, IO Interactive is offering a free upgrade for PS4 version buyers. PlayStation VR owners should definitely buy the offshoot for PS4. A few days ago we also reported on the free adapter that PSVR players need for the PS4's camera.
A similar situation prevails with No Man's Sky. Here, too, the PSVR mode can only be used via the PS4 version and thus exclusively via the backward compatibility of the PS5. Sony has not yet presented any plans for a successor to the VR headset. Last week, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan hinted that it might be a while before we hear about PSVR 2. In the past, there were always rumors.
