PS5 Pro is Definitely Being Worked on at Sony For a 2024 Launch

Sony is definitely working on a PS5 Pro. We have heard rumblings of a more powerful PlayStation 5 for a while already but a report claims that Sony has ramped up development on the hardware. So much so that the company is already targeting Q3 2023 to send out the dev kits for the PS5 Pro to its first-party developers with third-party developers set to get them by the end of the year.

The company is reportedly set to release the PS5 Pro to consumers sometime in 2024. By the sound of things, the console will arrive within the first half of the year.

Of course, as these reports and rumours go, take them with a pinch of salt for now. We have heard in the past that Sony is working on a PS5 Slim console which is also set to launch by the end of this year. The console is said to remove the disc drive completely as the company will sell it separately. It would make sense for the company to release this PS5 Pro in 2024.

Previous reports claimed that Sony was entering its so-called “next phase of the PS5” which includes new hardware, games and accessories for the console. This doubles up the rumours we have heard of a new PlayStation Portable device, the PS5 Slim and PS5 Pro.

The PlayStation brand is known for its hardware revisions. All past PlayStation consoles entered “new phases” throughout its lifecycle. The PS4 had a Slim and a Pro console. The PS3 had two Slim consoles. One of which marked a substantial rebranding for PlayStation. The PS2 also had two hardware revisions. The original PlayStation had a Slim version too.

It is a no-brainer that Sony would release a PS5 Pro. The hardware will likely feature a performance improvement in order to scale games closer to 4K 120Hz. The current PS5 is equivalent to an RTX 2060 so a PS5 Pro would likely target an RTX 3070.

A reminder – until Sony announces this hardware, take what you see and hear on the internet with a pinch of salt.
