PS5 Devkit

The PlayStation 5 devkit is probably the hottest piece of hardware within the video game industry right now as developers start to put together plans for the next generation. We assume that every member of PlayStation's Worldwide Studios is working towards a PS5 title now as the PlayStation 4 is left behind, but it looks like third-party teams are now getting their hands on them too.

Speaking at EGX 2019, the lead game designer of Dying Light 2 told Push Square that Techland now has PS5 devkits in-house. "Of course we have the next-gen consoles in our studio and of course we have a plan for them and I think that's the most I can say."

It has been confirmed that Dying Light 2 will be getting a PS5 version once the new console launches, so it's understandable why the company would need access to those devkits as soon as possible. The publisher has more in the pipeline than just its zombie follow-up to the 2015 classic, however, which leads us to think that most of Techland's focus must now be placed solely on the next generation. It's getting to the point where if you can name any decently sized developer, PS5 devkits are probably already in-house.

Are you excited to see what Techland does next generation? Let us know in the comments below.
