PS5 Pro Dev Kits Reportedly Being Sent Out In Next Few Months

Expected To Launch Q4 2024!

The PS5 has been on the market for well over two years, with a steady growth in the number of current-gen-only games for the console.

At launch, the PS5 brought upgrades like an all-new SSD, a much more capable CPU, GPU, and other innovations like the DualSense controller. Due to these features, audiences were impressed with the hardware, and the PS5 has held up well since its launch.

Recent rumors have also claimed that a PS5 Pro is in development. Following up on these rumors, another report claims that PS5 Pro dev kits will be sent out soon.

Why it matters: The PS5 is already quite capable, and many have been skeptical about the existence of a PS5 Pro. Gaming audiences also believe that a PS5 Pro is not needed, but this report appears to confirm its existence.

Elaborating on the previous rumors, the source claims to be 100% certain about the PS5 Pro being in development.

Furthermore, the report believes that first-party developers from Sony will receive dev kit prototypes for the mid-gen refresh in the next few months. This includes developers like Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, and more.

Sony is also planning to send dev kits to third-party developers by the end of 2023. Currently, developers like Rockstar are busy with big games like GTA 6. A PS5 Pro dev kit could allow such teams to experiment further with the hardware to ensure that these games can adequately use the more powerful console.

The report also details the schedule for other pieces of hardware from Sony. Among these, the PlayStation Q-Lite is expected to launch close to the PS5 Pro. The Q-Lite will be a dedicated handheld from Sony, only offering Remote Play capabilities with the PS5 console.

While a PS5 Pro may not be too exciting, fans will be curious to learn more about the console. Since the release of the PS5, technologies like ray tracing have seen massive improvements.

This could be one of the main improvements featured in the mid-gen refresh, but only time will tell if the PS5 Pro will be a worthy upgrade over the existing console.
