We are less than two weeks away from the arrival of the PlayStation 5, but an interesting quirk of the next-generation console has already emerged. According to IGN Italia, Sony has confirmed to it that the PlayStation 5 will not support 1440p, also known as 2K. The PlayStation 5 can output in up to 8K, to recap but 1440p will not be one of the resolutions that the console offers.
It is unclear why this is the case, though. Sony may, of course, eventually enable 1440p on the PlayStation 5, but it did not inform IGN Italia of this. In fairness to Sony, there are hardly any 1440p TVs, so we can see why it decided against include support for the resolution.
However, there are many 1440p monitors. If you were planning to connect a PlayStation 5 to a 1440p monitor, then you have two choices. On the one hand, you could game in native 1080p, although that will not make full use of the console's capabilities. On the other hand, you could purchase a 4K monitor, which would be an expensive upgrade for a new console generation. Ultimately, the decision will probably disproportionately affect predominantly PC gamers and only a kick in the teeth for those who have 1440p monitors.
