First, Sony confirmed it was making a next-generation console that would support VR. Following last week’s report, Cnet followed up with Sony’s Dominic Mallinson.

We still wouldn’t expect Sony to wait another three years after that to launch PSVR 2; the original headset will be a relic by that point, but should we expect it in 2021 or 2022?
