DC Universe Online PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Superhero MMO DC Universe Online’s lifespan has been so long that it originally released as a PS3 console exclusive under the Sony Online Entertainment umbrella. The publisher was eventually spun off and re-established as Daybreak Game Company, where it continues to operate its licensed online open world to this very day.

And now the developer has confirmed that the title will expand to a third PlayStation generation, with a native PS5 port due out later this year. “Along with the performance gains found playing natively on the latest and greatest hardware, the team is also working on gameplay and quality of life improvements to match,” the studio said.

It added: “This initiative is a long-term endeavour that is already underway. You will see some of these improvements launch over the next few months prior to release on the new consoles, some of them at launch, and some of them following over the course of next year.”

It’s important to note that the PS5 version of the game will run on the exact same servers as any previous iterations, so all of your characters, purchases, and progress will carry across. And, in addition to the new versions, there’s also a robust slate of new content planned to keep the experience fresh moving forwards.
