Unreal Engine 5 supported on PS5 and Xbox Series X

Unreal Engine 5 supported on PS5 and Xbox Series X

The full release of the new technology is expected to be in mid-2021.

Developers have confirmed the Unreal Engine 5 will be fully available on both PS5 and Xbox Series X. This means that the new Nanite and Lumen technologies will be ready to enhance the gaming experience on both consoles.


Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic Games, has recently tweeted about UE5’s multi-platform availability. You can see the tweet below.

“The Unreal Engine 5 demo on PlayStation 5 was the culmination of years of discussions between Sony and Epic on future graphics and storage architectures. The Nanite and Lumen tech powering it will be fully supported on both PS5 and Xbox Series X and will be awesome on both.”

He then added that high-end PCs are members of that list. “Features for scaling the content down to run on current generation platforms using traditional rendering and lighting technique” will also be available. In a follow-up tweet, however, he mentioned that unfortunately Commodore 64 will not be one of the supported platforms.

Furthermore, Sweeney addressed the questions about the infamous Volumetric Dog. “Don’t even ask about this feature, it’s under Super Secret NDA,” he stated.
