The PlayStation 5 is getting a virtual reality headset, Sony announced on Tuesday.

The new headset is the successor to PlayStation VR, which launched for the PlayStation 4 in 2016 and went on to sell millions of units. Though Sony didn’t share images of the new device, it’s said to provide, “dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity” over the previous generation. 

Sony Senior Vice President of platform planning and management Hideaki Nishino shared a few more details about the new headset in a blog post:

It won’t launch in 2021.
It has a new type of controller, “which will incorporate some of the key features” of the PlayStation 5 gamepad. 
It uses a single wire, rather than a series of cords (unlike the PlayStation VR headset for PS4).

The original PlayStation VR headset works on the PlayStation 5, albeit with technology that was originally launched nearly five years ago.
