Beat Saber is Still Coming to PSVR 2
Popular virtual reality rhythm laser sword game Beat Saber is still on its way to PlayStation VR 2.
At its CES presentation in January this year, Sony stated that the game was coming to PlayStation VR 2.
We're as excited about PS VR2 as you are! Our team continues working on the PS VR2 version but we're not ready to share any date just yet. Stay tuned, we can't wait to share more.

Now the studio behind the title, Beat Games, has confirmed that the title is still under development for PlayStation VR 2 although the release date isn’t being announced yet. The studio posted the message “Stay tuned, we can’t wait to share more” on its Twitter account.
The release of a PSVR 2 version of the widely popular VR hit would be a boon for the new Sony headset. Current market estimates suggest that the PlayStation VR 2 headset is performing poorly.
Beat Games, a Czech VR development studio, was acquired by Meta in 2019. There has been silence since the January announcement of the PSVR 2 version of the title and there were concerns in the VR community that Beat Saber for PSVR 2 might not be released after all.

Beat Games also announced new Beat Saber content: The Panic! At The Disco music pack from 2019 which it has now expanded by six songs. The pack now has a total of 10 tracks. The new additions are from Viva Las Vengeance (2022) and Pray for the Wicked (2018).
Beat Games also updated the beat maps and environments of the old songs to make them compatible with the new Arc and Chain notes as well as the lighting that was added in 2022.
Here is a list of the old and new tracks:
The old tracks include: –
- The Greatest Show

The six new tracks include the following: –
