DC Universe Online is finally coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X

Since DC UniverseOnline was released by Warner Bros. Games in 2011 for the PC and PlayStation 3, the publisher has been committed to extending the MMO experience to as many platforms as possible. So it should come as no surprise that the long-running MMO is getting a next-generation platform port.

The free-to-play action combat game will be available this holiday season for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, according to a developer announcement made earlier this week. Additionally, the ports to these platforms will provide the creators the chance to further improve the game by utilizing the unmatched capabilities of these next-generation devices.

Here is the complete statement:

DCUO is headed to the latest-generation of consoles with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this holiday season!

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. This initiative is a long-term endeavor 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. Stay tuned for a future update with more information.

Now, you may be wondering what this means for playing DCUO with your friends, and let us assure you right away that whether you choose to move to the latest console or stay on your current one, you will still be playing on the same servers with your same characters and friends, and with all of your purchases and achievements seamlessly intact. All you need to do is log in with the same PSN or Xbox account once you have downloaded the game on your new system.

The game’s roadmap for the upcoming months was also provided by the developer, and we’ve included it below:
