Those wanting to purchase a premium version, like the MVP Edition, can still do so on PlayStation 4. As has become the trend for many popular franchises, players who purchase the PS4 MVP Edition will also get dual entitlement to the PS5 version if they choose to upgrade in the current game cycle.
The franchise is developed by Sony's San Diego Studios, and was a PlayStation exclusive for quite some time. Though, in recent history, SDS has brought the franchise not only to Xbox, but the Nintendo Switch as well. This year's iteration is not only being released on PS4 again, but also Xbox One.
