The June State of Play broadcast is just a day away and it will give us a look at some of the games coming to PlayStation VR2. We’ll need to wait until tomorrow to see what those games are but in the meantime, I thought I would try and hunt down all the confirmed PS VR2 games I could find.
The majority of games in this list have been confirmed by the developer, either in interviews, blog posts or Tweets. I have also included as-of-yet unannounced games that the developer has confirmed are coming to PS VR2.
In a recent financial report, Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed that there are 20+ major titles coming to PS VR2 at launch. So some of the games in this list could very well be launch games. Indeed a couple of them have been confirmed as launch titles.
Horizon Call of the Mountain
Horizon Cal of the Mountain is the only first-party PS VR2 game that we know about so far. It was revealed by SIE head honcho Jim Ryan at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. Not a lot is known about Horizon Call of the Mountain but there’s a good chance we will see more from it at tomorrow’s State of Play. What we do know is that you won’t be playing as Aloy but you will meet her during the game.
Afterlife VR is an immersive horror game that has been confirmed as coming to PS VR2. The developer, Split Light Studio confirmed to PSVR Without Parole that is was heading to Sony’s next-gen VR headset in early 2023. Here’s a brief description of the game from the official website.
Afterlife VR is a deeply immersive horror game that will let you experience the true essence of terror. Play as Adam Bernhard, a young rookie police officer on a routine night patrol, who receives a call that will change his life forever. What is really lurking behind the door of a well-known mental facility, where Adam’s younger sister, Allison, was recently sent? Is there any connection between missing patients and hospital workers and the groundbreaking study about the Indigo Children phenomena? Uncover the secrets hidden deep within the Black Rose mental hospital walls, where most of the patients pose a threat to themselves and to others. Look into the eyes of pure madness intrinsically linked with this place and its history.

Fast Travel Games Unannounced PS VR2 Titles

Pavlov Shack is a multiplayer VR shooter with realistic weapon mechanics. The game features 5 v 5 competitive and social game modes. Pavlov looks pretty damn insane and very realistic. Check out this video of the game running on the Oculus Quest 2.
The developer of Pavlov Shack, davevillz confirmed via Twitter that Pavlov was coming to PS VR2 as PS VR did not have the fidelity required. The dev also confirmed that they had become a PlayStation partner in March 2021. So it seems pretty certain that Pavlov Shack will be coming to PlayStation VR2. Source: vrfinal.com
Developer Truant Pixel has confirmed that they are bringing their VR Motorbike racer/shooter to PlayStation VR2. Runner is an arcade-inspired racer that sees the player racing through levels and fighting off combat drones from the Caldara Corporation.
Truant Pixel has previously released a VR American Football game and they have also released themes and avatars for the PS3 and PS4. There is a possibility that Runner might be one of the PS VR2 games shown at tomorrow’s State of Play.
Hellsplit: Arena from Deep Type Games is another VR horror game confirmed to be heading to PS VR2. Here’s a little bit about the game from the official blurb.
A VR horror-slasher in the dark fantasy world of the late Middle Ages filled with the undead. It is gruesome and realistic, with stabbing, cutting and blunt blows, grabs, kicks, and movement tactics — the outcome of each fight depends only on your skill and endurance.
Deep Type Games confirmed that Hellsplit: Arena was coming to PS VR2 in an interview over on PlayStation Brahs. When asked about the game coming to PS VR the developer said “Currently, we are more focused on PSVR 2. Insider information reveals that the second iteration of the SONY headset matches better with the specifics of our game.“
Samurai Slaughter House
Samurai Slaughter House is another hack and slash game confirmed for PS VR2. The game looks to be very different from your usual hack and slash game though and has some very stylised graphics. It also looks to have some pretty unique gameplay too. Take a look at this clip that shows a loot crate coming to life to attack the player with its giant tongue.
Developer Tab Games confirmed that Samurai Slaughter House is coming to PlayStation VR2 in their tweet below.
Untitled Coatsink PS VR2 Launch Game
Jurassic World Aftermath developer Coatsink is making a PS VR2 launch game. The as of yet unannounced and untitled game was revealed to be in the works by Coatsink parent company Thunderful Publishing.
An eagle-eyed Redditor spotted a Thunderful financial report that stated that Coatsink was working on a PS VR2 launch title.

Low-Fi is a cyberpunk-styled VR RPG where you play as a Sherriff of cityblock 303, a rundown, retro-futuristic cyberpunk slum. The game is being developed by IRIS VR and the company confirmed that it was coming to PS5’s PS VR2 as well as PC VR.
Among Us VR
Among Us VR was confirmed to be coming to PS VR2 “when the headset is released” developer Schell Games said on Twitter. This could mean that Amon Us VR could be a potential PS VR2 launch game. So we might see it being officially revealed at tomorrow’s State of Play. Source: UploadVR
Unannounced First Contact Entertainment PS VR2 Game
Another unannounced PS VR2 title, this time from First Contact Entertainment. First Contact previously brought Firewall Zero Hour and Solaris Offworld Combat to PS VR, so they know what they are doing when it comes to VR immersion.
The confirmation that First Contact is making a game for PS VR2 comes from an employee’s Linkedin profile that was posted on Twitter. As with the previous unannounced titles, absolutely no information about this game is available yet. Source: UploadVR
Here’s a short description of Firmament from the official website.
Firmament is a resplendent fantastic steampunk journey — a monumental voyage through diverse and curious realms with the ever-present assistance of a helpful clockwork adjunct, and the deep and moving instruction and emotional chronicles of an ethereal mentor.
Within this eclectic, quizzical landscape everything you do leads to a mysterious event referred to as The Arrival
Green Hell VR
Green Hell VR is an open-world survival game that takes place in the Amazon Rainforest. Developer Incuvo stated that Green Hell VR would be ported to PlayStation VR platforms. The press release does not specifically state PS VR2. However, it does state a 2023 release window so it is probably safe to say that it will be coming to PS VR2 and not PS VR1. Source: vrplayer.fr
That is all the confirmed PS VR2 games that I could find for now. No doubt there will be other games shown during tomorrow’s State of Play broadcast.
