Is PSVR 2 multiplayer? Well, it depends on the games

PSVR 2 does not offer local multiplier capabilities, which shouldn’t come as a surprise since you can’t fit two heads in the same headset. However, according to PlayStation, you also can’t connect two PSVR 2 headsets to the same PS5 console simultaneously since it can only support one at a time.

With that said, since you can connect the PSVR 2 to the internet, you may get to play online multiplayer games through it. However, this will depend on each title released for PSVR 2.

Online multiplayer games will only be possible if the developers of PSVR 2 games decide to create them. For example, some gamers have predicted Gran Turismo 7 to have multiplayer capabilities.

For now, the datasheet for PSVR 2 doesn’t include online compatibility. It only mentions online downloads and updates. However, if you’re playing your PS5 games using the PSVR 2 as your display, those games will have multiplayer capabilities.

We can only wait for PS to release PSVR 2, and only then will we know whether it has online multiplayer capabilities. As for local multiplayer capabilities, there’s still some time until we’ll experience that.

Since our testing phase for the full PSVR 2 review, we’ve learned that there are definitely multiplayer capabilities, as some of the early game codes we were given have these features. However, as they were pre-release, we couldn’t test them for ourselves.
