The PS5 Pro is in development, and Insider Gaming sources have confirmed this. A late 2024 release date has been proposed as a possible target.
An updated PlayStation 5 with a removable disc drive is expected to be released later this year, according to a previous Insider Gaming story. To save production and shipping costs, it is thought that the current PlayStation 5 will gradually be replaced by this new model. Despite persistent rumors to the contrary, this is not the PS5 Pro version.
The detachable disc drive console is “just the beginning of new hardware coming to PlayStation users this generation,” according to one source.
Sony’s Attempt to ‘Accelerate’ Ray Tracing Performance in PS5 Games Revealed in Patent
There are few specifics available regarding PS5 specifications. Sony Interactive Entertainment, however, appears to be attempting to “accelerate” ray tracing performance in video games, according to a recently published patent by PlayStation architect Mark Cerny (noticed by @Onion00048).
We can generally predict with some degree of confidence that the PS5 Pro will have improved visuals, performance, and speeds, just like the PS4 to PS4 Pro. However, we won’t be releasing any leaked information until a later time.
The PS6, the PlayStation’s sixth generation, won’t probably be available until at least 2028. This would align the console release calendar for the current generation with those of the previous generations.
The tweet below confirms the release date of PS5 Pro:
Industry insider Jeff Grubb said in February that Sony intended to hold a new PlayStation Showcase “before E3” on the Game Mess Decides podcast. Even though Insider Gaming is unable to confirm this rumor at the moment, we believe it is highly likely that a showcase will soon be held to display games like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and discuss the new hardware the company will be releasing at the end of 2023.
It remains to be seen whether the PS5 Pro makes sense. Developers still need to release previous generations of consoles in order to increase sales of the current generation, which appears to have only recently stabilized as a result of chip shortages.
A significant phase-out of previous-generation titles in the spring of 2024 seems plausible given that Sony anticipates a record-breaking FY23 for console unit sales (of roughly 30.5 million units).
