According to Tobii's press release, the company is negotiating with Sony to be the provider of PlayStation VR2's eye-tracking software.
Tobii, the manufacturer of eye-tracking technology that is present in such devices as HTC Vive Pro Eye, HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition, Pico Neo 2 Eye, and Pico Neo 3 Pro Eye, has released a statement revealing that it is currently in negotiation with Sony Interactive Entertainment. The negotiation concerns the company's possibility of being the provider of PlayStation VR2's eye-tracking software.
Tobii produces eye and head tracking cameras that use a custom infrared optical sensor and is supported by a number of Ubisoft titles including Far Cry 6, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and For Honor. Games that support Tobii's technology can use it for aiming and selecting items in accordance with where the player is looking. The company sells eye and head tracking cameras at $230/£230.

Currently, the financial details are not disclosed as "negotiations are ongoing". Sony hasn't commented on the PSVR2’s release date yet. However, at CES 2022 last month, the company has revealed the specifications of the upcoming device which include eye-tracking technology. “With eye-tracking, PSVR2 detects the motion of your eyes, so a simple look in a specific direction can create an additional input for the game character,” reported the company.
