Swedish company Tobii has announced that the PlayStation VR2 will use its eye-tracking technology. Negotiations between Tobii and Sony Interactive Entertainment became known in February this year.
Additionally, Tobii CEO Anand Srivatsa said the proceeds from the transaction would account for more than 10% of the company’s annual revenue. He pointed out that the rapid development of the virtual reality industry does not allow for a sales forecast beyond 2022, so Tobii cannot provide any information on potential sales for the next year.
This isn’t the first time Tobii’s technology has been used in VR headsets. For example, it uses a VR solution from Qualcomm. The technology is also used in the HTC Vive Pro Eye, HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition and Pico Neo 3 Pro Eye. PlayStation VR2 will join that list, though it’s currently unknown when.
Neither Sony Interactive Entertainment nor Tobii have announced a release date for the PlayStation VR2. Multiple sources point to the launch of a next-gen VR headset in 2023.
