One of the most popular questions among Honkai Star Rail players is centered around the game’s PS5 release. It has been widely known that the popular gacha will eventually be available on the PlayStation 5, thanks to the previous trailer released by Sony. miHoYo, the developers, have followed a similar pattern already with Genshin Impact, as a port for Sony’s console was developed over time.
While the developer has officially confirmed the port, its release date remains unknown as of this writing. However, a social media rumor has hinted about a potential launch date for version 1.1, which could coincide with the game’s release on the PS5.
Honkai Star Rail’s PS5 release could make the game an even bigger success
The PlayStation 5 port will be important in the grand scheme of things. It will certainly benefit those who might not have PCs and mobiles powerful enough to run the game, leading to an increase in downloads and commercial income for miHoYo.
Based on the last known rumor, the PS5 port will likely release with version 1.1. The next major update will introduce plenty of new content in the form of events and characters.
The release date of version 1.1 isn’t known as of now. miHoYo has yet to confirm a potential timeline for the update, but it’s expected that the dates mentioned on the current Nameless Honor battle pass are a great indicator. If it turns out to be true, version 1.1 will likely release on June 7, 2023. However, the dates aren’t confirmed, so readers must take the information carefully.
Honkai Star Rail is likely to get a PS4 release as well, which could have some differences in quality compared to the current-gen version. Readers are advised to follow the game’s official Twitter account and Sportskeeda for all the latest and updated information.
