Yes, Beat Saber is still coming to Playstation VR 2
In case you were wondering: The VR hit Beat Saber is still in development for Playstation VR 2.
Beat Games confirmed yesterday via Twitter that they are still working on the PSVR 2 version of the game, but are not ready to announce a release date yet. "Stay tuned, we can't wait to share more," the studio writes.
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.

Sony announced Beat Saber on January 5, 2023 at CES. Since then, nothing has been heard about the PSVR 2 version.
The release of the most successful VR game would certainly help the platform. According to first estimates from market researchers, Playstation VR 2 is selling sluggishly.
The Czech studio behind Beat Saber was acquired by Meta in 2019, and for quite some time, it was unclear whether the VR game would be released for Sony's new VR headset at all.
