If rumours are to be believed, a Pro version of the PS5 might be in the works at Sony – but is it too soon for another new console?
According to a report published by ReGamingTech, Sony is reportedly planning to release a more powerful PS5 console in 2024. As for how much more powerful it might be, we’re not exactly sure. However, improvements are expected to be made to ray tracing capabilities, storage capacity, and improved support for PSVR.
It certainly seems like it might be a little too early to be calling shots on a new console iteration. Let’s be honest, base versions of the PS5 are still tricky to get a hold off. That stock shortage doesn’t seem set to change any time soon, either.
PS5 Pro Rumours – Are they true?
However, Sony aiming for a 2024 release window does follow a precedent which could give this rumour legs. The PS4 Pro was released in 2016, three years after the release of the PS4. 2024 would actually be 4 years after the 2020 release of the PS5.
With that being said, I remember the PS4 already struggling to run the latest releases at high frame rates in 2016. That doesn’t seem to be the case with the PS5 – at least for now. All of the most recent first party releases have featured at least a resolution and performance mode. Some even include a separate ray tracing mode for good measure. One things for sure – the PS5 is showing no signs of slowing down yet.
Sony is yet to comment officially on any of these rumours.
