Well, that’s not what we wanted to hear. Such as Yakuza: Like a dragon Confirms that PlayStation 4 save data will not be transferred to the upgraded PlayStation 5 versionThis may be the case for many of the other current-generation titles for which you’ll be able to get a free upgrade, said Jane Park of The Washington Post. He says he has heard “a lot of different developers that a PS4 save won’t work on a PS5. It looks like the Xbox Series X brings old saves with you.” Then he expanded, saying, “It’s not entirely about backward compatibility, it’s about PS5 upgrades like Spider-Man: Miles, Yakuza.”

We have to make it clear that the quote is targeting PS4 games that will receive a free PS5 update instead of those that can simply be played through backward compatibility. This includes the likes of Watch Dogs Legion, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Cyberpunk 2077. If this proves to be true, it means that we will have to start single-player games again, even if we’re halfway through. A lengthy campaign. There is no better example of this than Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The game is released on PS4 just two days before the US launch of the PS5 – will those who choose to buy the current generation version and then upgrade maybe after a few weeks have to start the game over again? If someone beats a Cyberpunk 2077 campaign on a PS4 and then wants to play DLC on a PS5, what happens there? They will definitely need a character with a full level and they will not be able to reach.

Once again, we have to confirm that the claim is currently unconfirmed, but after Yakuza’s announcement: like the Dragon’s announcement that this will indeed be the case for that particular game, we can’t help but be a little worried. Let’s hope Sony has come up with some kind of feature to convert saved PS4 to PS5 as this could quickly become a real problem.
