Sony investigates internal data leak on secret project

"Future Leak"

Sony has launched an internal investigation following the leak of confidential data regarding an undisclosed project, unofficially referred to as the Trinity or PS5 Pro. The breach occurred during a collaboration with third-party developers, raising questions about future security measures with external parties.

The news about the investigation was initially revealed by Insider Gaming. Sony is also assessing the authenticity of the leaked documents, aired by a popular YouTuber. The incident may result in Sony limiting third-party developers’ access to new tech, a move that could reverberate through the gaming industry.

Specifically, Sony is focusing on the data leak related to the Trinity project. The full implications of this breach are not clear yet, but there’s the potential that it will significantly affect Sony’s list of third-party developers for future projects.

Rumors on the PS5 Pro suggest it could perform 300% faster than the PS5 and is expected to be released by Holiday 2024. This leak has led to criticism and questions about how such sensitive documents leaked and the potential negative impact on game optimization if fewer developers are engaged.

Many in the industry have expressed skepticism about this rumoured shift in resources. They fear that reducing the number of developers on such projects could slow the optimization process and potentially affect the overall gaming experience.

In regards to the leaked specifications, critics question the lack of significant changes to the CPU that could limit game frame rates. They also question the supposed price tag of over £500 for small improvements in resolution, slight enhancements in graphical presets, and improved ray-tracing capabilities.
