This was revealed on Twitter by Brad Lych, a YouTuber and XR hardware analyst/VR level designer.

In a message on New Year’s Day, Lynch wrote: “Goertek, Chinese manufacturer, will be put in charge of the mass production of Meta Cambria and PS VR 2 (soon!)

Goertek sold Pico to Bytedance earlier this year but signed a deal to continue producing Pico headsets

“Also expects to provide components for Apple AR/VR HMD.”

In a final message, Lynch said PSVR 2 could launch in the second half of 2022.

But PS5 fans are still hoping that PSVR 2 could launch around the time of Gran Turismo 7, which comes out in March, or that Sony will unveil the headset around the GT7 launch.

It is rumored that Gran Turismo 7 could bring support for PSVR 2. Gran Turismo Sport supported the original PSVR, but so far PSVR 2 support for GT 7 has not been announced.

When asked about this earlier by Eurogamer, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has not confirmed or denied whether Gran Turismo 7 would have any kind of VR support.

In September, Yamauchi-san said, “So as for PSVR, we’re not in a state where we can’t talk about it yet.”

And after these latest rumors about PSVR 2 surfaced, PS5 fans on Reddit speculated that we could learn more about the headset in the coming months.

One posted: “I expect them to reveal it before GT7 launch as I think GT7 will be the first AAA FP game to be fully playable in PSVR2”.

While another wrote: “I think GT7 will have a VR mode for PSVR users on PS4, similar to GT Sports….but it will only be fully playable on PSVR2 for PS5 owners”.

And someone added, “I imagine this will make PS5s even harder to get.”
