Although SCUF did not give a specific date on when we can expect to hear more, a window of mid-November was given. The company concluded by saying “Stay tuned for more information next month on how you can get your hands on the latest next gen SCUF for PS5.”
There isn’t too much known about the PS5 SCUF controller. However, you can glean some details from the released image included in the tweet. SCUF appears to be maintaining the overall design of Sony’s DualSense, which is to be expected. Back paddles, which are typically utilized in more competitive games like Call of Duty, Apex Legends, and Battlefield, can be seen on the rear side of the controller. Back paddles also open up customization and button remapping options for players in and out of a competitive setting.
Recently, SCUF released the SCUF Instinct Pro controller for Xbox Series X/S, launching with “pro” features such as back paddles, trigger tension options, and on-controller mute options.
