Sony unveiled their next-generation console back in April 2019 but have now officially confirmed that the PS4 successor is set for release in time for "Holiday 2020."

The company also revealed two key innovations for the PlayStation 5’s new controller in line with its goal to deepen the feeling of immersion when playing games.

haptic technology

The PlayStation 5 will feature haptic feedback, replacing the "rumble" technology found in controllers since the 5th generation of consoles.

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.

adaptive triggers

The new controller will also feature adaptive triggers incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2).

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.

- Jim Ryan President and CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc

Although there have been a couple of concept sketches floating around, Sony has not yet confirmed what the PlayStation 5 will look like.
