A die PS5 Highlight Features will be discontinued later this year as no one has used it. Commendations were introduced on the next-gen console as a means of allowing players to recognize everyone’s efforts in online games. The feature let you assign badges to teammates and opponents based on their playstyle, so you could tell they were helpful or welcoming, for example.
But a post on the official PlayStation website notes that adoption has been low: “In fall 2022, the Accolades feature on PS5 will no longer be supported. The feature has not seen the level of usage we anticipated, so we are refocusing our efforts We encourage the community to continue sending positive messages to each other.
Sony recently pointed out that engagement on its consoles has been “much weaker than expected” lately, and that’s working to increase the number of playtime owners investing on both the PS5 and PS4. We imagine new initiatives such as the loyalty program PS Stars will help with this, so it makes sense for the company to move away from Accolades if they are not used.
