Techland’s Lead Game Developer Says the PS5’s DualSense Controller Could be the “Best in History”

We haven’t seen the PS5 console yet, by Sony has managed to nail its next-gen controller design

While Sony’s new DualSense controller for the next-gen PlayStation 5 has drawn some polarizing opinions, game developers seem to be relatively positive about it. Earlier in April, Pete Hines from Bethesda expressed a positive opinion on Twitter and now, a new interview with PushSquare has revealed that Tymon Smektala, the Lead Game Designer at Techland, has a very positive opinion of it as well.

If you’re unaware, Techland is the developer behind Dying Light and the upcoming Dying Light 2. In an interview with PushSquare, Smektala expressed how much he likes the controller and its design:

“I absolutely love it. It’s an amazing design, as futuristic as we should expect in 2020 – the sci-fi times we already live in. As for the shape, we need to see how it will fit in the hands, but looking at it I get very good vibes – I think it has a chance to be one of the best in history, just big enough but neat & funky at the same time.”

But, it’s not just the design that makes it stand out. With the PS5 DualSense controller featuring things like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, if gives game developers much more control over how a game is played and how the game is felt by players.

“I also think that the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers can be real game-changers, way more than people expect right now. I’m curious about the overall sturdiness of the thing. It looks so sleek I wonder if it will survive accidental falls and rage quits. But all in all, even though I know the initial opinions were varied, for me it’s absolutely fantastic.”

So far, it seems that even though Sony has yet to reveal the PlayStation 5, there’s a lot of love surrounding its new controller, and that’s definitely some good news for a console that has seen a lot of bad rumors and speculation. As far as Dying Light 2 goes, there’s no set release date now that it has been delayed indefinitely, but the studio has said that it will be better because of the delay. You can bet the game is going to take advantage of the DualSense controllers advanced features too.
