In a blog post Jim Ryan – the president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment – said:
“Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring.
“Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.”
Meanwhile, the PS5 controller is getting a revamp, with the first innovation set to be haptic feedback to replace the long-running ‘rumble’ technology.
“With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field.
“You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.”
Meanwhile, the controller’s trigger buttons will feature ‘adaptive triggers’.
Addressing the development, Ryan said:
“Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.
“In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions.”
