Gaming journalist Tom Henderson confirmed that Sony are currently working on various projects including the PlayStation 5 Pro that would be launched in 2024.
Even though Sony has yet to confirm anything, Henderson is confident that the PlayStation 5 Pro will be released towards the end of last year
PlayStation 5 Pro: all you need to know
The PS5 Pro is supposed to be an upgrade to the PS5 with improved performances, speed and visuals. Henderson believes that, just like the PS4 generation, the Pro edition is an improved version of the regular one.
Insider Gaming are sure at a hundred percent that this project is under development and cannot reveal much about it. However they still said that the first development kit prototype will be given to a first party developers "within a couple of months". By the end of the year, a third party developers should have received the kits.
Tom Henderson has proven in the past that he is a reliable journalist. If we compare to the release dates of the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro, this info on PS5 Pro seems reliable. The PS4 Pro was released in 2016, three years after the PS4 model (release date: 2013). The PlayStation 5 was launched in 2020, meaning that the Pro model would be four years after its original model.
Other Sony projects
In January 2023, Sony announced project Leonardo. It is basically a new controller named Leonardo. The controller is set to be "highly customisable" with players being able to shape it to their own needs.
A new PS5 model is also being developed. PS5 slim, according to Tom Henderson, will be released by September of this year. It is supposed to be just like the PS5 with only one distinction, the Slim edition will have a detachable disc drive.
Two new wireless audio devices are set to be released by March 2024. Project Nomad (earbuds) and Project Voyager (headset) are reportedly being developed.
A new handled accessory named Q Lite is set to see the day by the end of 2023. From what Tom Henderson says it is only an "accessory" and is not the "successor of Vita 2". It will just look like a dual sense controller but will have a screen in the centre of it. The main selling point for the Q Lite is the incorporation of haptic feedback.
It is also alleged that the new generation of PlayStations will come sometime during or after 2028 with the PS6.
These are all rumoured projects that Sony have not talked about in public nor made any commercial releases or statements.
