There have been rumours going around regarding the development of the next-gen console since early this year. But now we finally have confirmation, that the next-gen of PS will indeed be called PlayStation 5 and will release in the holiday season of 2020.

Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, confirmed this on the official PS blog today, saying, “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.”

In an exclusive interview with WIRED, Ryan revealed that PlayStation5 will have an SSD which will lead to faster loading times. The new PS will also support Ray Tracing, he confirmed in the interview.

The official blog also revealed details about the new PlayStation 5 controller. It will have two new features: Haptic Feedback and adaptive triggers.

Haptic feedback will allow the players to feel a wide range of feedback, much more than the current rumble function.

The Adaptive Trigger function will work on L2 and R2 buttons. According to Sony, developers will be able to program the resistances of the triggers depending on the action “so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain.”
Ryan further explained, “In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions. Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.”
More details regarding the PlayStation 5 will be revealed at “another time”, as he says.
