We all know that PS4 era is coming to an end, especially when Sony announced at E3 2018 that this console has finally reached its last stage of life. Adding more they also announced Sony’s next-gen PS5 to be in the works as well. Now, however, it seems like this new gaming platform has popped up in Unreal Engine 4’s code.
Yes, that is correct, a user who goes by the name, Gemüsepizza posted what he seems to have spotted to be the codename for PS5. Since it is just a spotting and not an official confirmation, we would recommend you to take this with a grain of salt.
Now, it seems to be that Gemüsepizza was able to spot the name Erebus mentioned alongside PS4, Xbox, Switch and some other platforms. Now provided if it’s referring to a new console then it definitely possibly, could be referring to Sony’s next-gen console.
For those who do not know, Erebus comes from Greek mythology, and essentially means the God of darkness. Now how does it relate to PS5? Well, if you may ask, PS4 before its release also had a mythological name, Oribis. While Neo was PS4 Pro’s code name and also PSVR’s was Morpheus. So it seems to reason that Erebus is a good enough candidate for PS5.
Now while some of the sources do seems to suggest that this is a new gen console, there are some which suggest that there is no necessity that it would be referring to Sony’s console.
With all that said, this is not the first time, we have received this kind of a hint. We have been receiving a lot of reports regarding the next-gen PS5 lately. Like just a little while back, in a job listing for future Call Of Duty hinted at PlayStation 5 alongside next-gen Xbox as well.
Now we all know that this next-gen PS5 is rumored to roll out sometime in 2020, there have been quite a lot of leaks as well. So speculations are something that really keeps the fans in the loop. Apparently, fans have been speculating quite a lot and it seems like they also have some recommendations for Sony as well as Microsoft, in terms of next-gen consoles.
It seems like fans want the next-gen console to support 4K at 60 FPS and rather not much on other features other than enhanced power.
So yes, it seems like things are finally making sense, let’s just hope that PS5 turns out to be more amazing because there is no doubt about PS4’s success.
