The next generation of the PlayStation family will be released no earlier than 2028.
One of the most reputable and well-known gaming insiders, Tom Henderson, shared details about the yet-to-be-announced PlayStation 5 Pro and PlayStation 6. He published a note on the KeyToGaming website.
According to him, Sony is indeed developing an improved version of the PS5 – it is codenamed Project Trinity, and has been working on it since the beginning of 2022. Devkits (developer consoles) are expected to ship to a number of studios before the end of November 2023.
As for the console features, the PS5 Pro will focus on a constant frame rate at 4K resolution, and an 8K performance mode will also be added. Also, the updated console should work better with ray tracing. The release is likely to take place in November next year.
The next generation of consoles – PlayStation 6 – will be presented only in 2028, according to an insider.
Henderson has previously said that the PlayStation 5 Slim may not be what is expected of it. Allegedly, the console will not be “thin”, that is, it will not be positioned as a lightweight version. And it is unlikely that the console will receive the word Slim in the title.
Meanwhile, Sony is scheduled to release Project Q, the company’s new handheld console, this fall. It is designed to play PlayStation 5 games using the Remote Play function. Projects will be broadcast in 1080p resolution at 60 fps.
Sony previously unveiled a limited-edition PS5 bundle that includes a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2-themed DualSense Wireless console and controller. It will be available on September 1st.
