A new Tweet from PlayStation France may have accidentally revealed the PSVR2's release window ahead of schedule, The Tweet, which is still live, simply states "Disponible debut 2023," which translates to "available early 2023."

Sony has yet to make any official confirmation of the PlayStation VR2's release date or launch timing outside of this particular Tweet. Last month Sony shared a new look at the PSVR2's user experience, including head tracking, sight pass-through, and other major quality-of-life and performance features.

Since then there hasn't been any new information on the headset outside of the existing details like specifications and assurances that the HMD is a "dramatic leap forward in gameplay innovation." One of the major new breakthrough features is a single USB-C cord that will provide interface with the PS5, a new eyesight pass-through feature that will let wearers see real-world surroundings, and new high-end hand-controllers that utilize the same tech as the PS5's DualSense.

Sony has been sending PlayStation VR2 devkits overseas to developers for months now. Earlier in the year, we spotted a high volume of devkits being sent across the world from various locations. Shipping manifests and import records showed that Sony had sent out thousands of mysterious devkits to overseas locations.
