    There is no announced PS5 release date.. Yet, I.. would think
    November 2019 or 2020 release date for the PS5. As Kenichiro Yoshida said, Sony boss, in an interview with the Financial Times in early October. "At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware,"

    o_O That's not saying much, really, but it is an official comment from Sony that acknowledges the need for a PS5.

    ?? And will? DCUO going to be on ps5.


    Yours faithfully!

    1000% certain no person at daybreak could give an answer other than maybe. tbh you would get a better answer from an 8 ball lol.

    Although most likely should the game still be functional then it will go on to the new platform, you are however, unlikely to get an answer as they're not likely to discuss the possibility of additional platforms for an as yet unknown and unannounced device.

    For all we know it might be backwards compatible and thus no requirement to adapt to the new platform, who knows.

    You'll have to wait and see.

    The Unreal 3 engine would have to be ported first.

    I find it fascinating, how we all think differently about whether, to discuss the possibility of additional platforms for an as yet unknown and unannounced device. But one thing I’ve got to say and I don’t think many will disagree, it’s affordable for anyone who wishes to use it.

    But Proxystar yes.. i guess we'll just have to wait. ^

    Or they would have to upgrade DCUO to Unreal 4.

    That's less "upgrade" than "total redesign from the floor up."

    Blade and Soul is being ported from UE3 to UE4, and its a game as old as DCUO. It's not totally crazy to think that the port could happen, some people value having years worth of content in a mmo. Not everything is next gen shiny graphics.

    This. Especially since Sony has not announced anything about PS5 except for they'll be making one. No release date, time frame, specifications etc. As with the current way of Sony, it is even possible that they will not allow old software to be ported over (for technical or license reasons). Speaking of it: Daybreak could need a license extension by DC for such a move.

    So, way tooooooooo early for this kind of thread.

    I think we are some way off the PS5. My guess would be late 2020. It would be wonderful if it had backward compatibility.

    So far my PS4 has lasted four years, about which I am delighted. I went through three PS3s in the equivalent time. They were garbage for longevity. YLOD anyone? I’ll just cross my fingers my PS4 sees me through to the PS5.

    Nah by all means talk about ps5 speculation, just don't expect an official answer and none of the users here truly know anything and if they did they certainly wouldn't be allowed to say anything ;)

    I hear what you’re saying. **

    Sure would make backing out of the new ps5 easier. Just maybe :rolleyes:

    To be fair, the DCUO devs did say that we would not see anything major right away and it would take time.
