According to a new rumor, PlayStation 5 dev kits could be out in the wild. Sony’s first party studios are working on games that will release on PS5 in the next two years. According to insider Daniel Ahmed, PlayStation 5 dev kits are currently available to Sony first party studios. He stated that he has heard positive things about the dev kits.
PS5 dev kits are out there and I’ve heard positive things about it. But I wouldn’t expect any information in the immediate future.
2019 will be another solid year for the platform due to the large install base, growing network sales, strong third-party software, first-party software and back catalog. The lineup for the first half of the year is set but the second half is still in flux. Sony also has a couple of unannounced games (already existing IP) with PS4 in mind but I’m conscious that there have been discussions around making them cross-gen/next-gen titles. In general, most of the focus for Sony 1P is on PS5 right now. It is still early to talk about next gen but I imagine we’ll hear some whispers come out of GDC.
He also revealed how Sony plans to invest more in PSN for a better online infrastructure for PS5. PlayStation Network has struggled to maintain a smooth experience over the years. With PS5, Sony plans to make sure a better online service is provided to PlayStation Network users around the world.
