Some of the new features include a wrist-mounted health display, as well as an instant 180-degree turn to quickly recover from ambushes. Doom 3: VR Edition is set to release on March 29, 2021.

Microsoft is currently working to finalize its acquisition of ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks and its family of studios, including id Software. As such, this could end up being one of the last Bethesda games see ported to PSVR or PlayStation platforms in general, although timed console exclusives Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo are still being honored.

Sony is currently working on a next generation version of PSVR for PS5, though it won't be released in 2021. This new version will have a higher resolution, improved tracking, wider field of view and new controllers borrowing from the DualSense features like haptic feedback.
