Sony Reportedly Cuts PlayStation VR2 Production After Disappointing Pre-Orders

The company will ship around one million units instead of two.

Sony had to cool down its expectations concerning PlayStation VR2 and cut its forecast for shipments after disappointing pre-orders, according to Bloomberg. Insiders say the company is now planning to release one million units in the first quarter instead of the two it aimed for before.

Sony wants to ship around 1.5 million units between this April and March next year, the report states, though this number may be adjusted in response to demand.

The studio started PS VR2 pre-orders on an invitation basis in November but soon extended the privilege to anyone wishing to buy it. The headset will work only with PlayStation 5 console, which significantly limits its usefulness in some players' eyes.

"The VR era will come," Display Supply Chain Consultants co-founder Yoshio Tamura commented. "We’re just not there yet."

PS VR2 is going to be released on February 22. Its owners will enjoy a range of games on launch, including Horizon Call Of The Mountain, No Man’s Sky, and Resident Evil Village.
