PS5 Beta Compatibility!

4/28/2021 Update: The PS5 compatibility is still limited at this time to licensed 3rd party controllers, with the list of confirmed compatible controllers below. This list is not exclusive as other controllers may work but are not yet confirmed. If anyone has additional controllers that they've tested and confirmed working, please let us know.


NOTE: The PS5 DualSense controller is not currently able to authenticate through the K2, so every 8 minutes the PS5 will disconnect the K2 for the failed authentication. This is the reason the 3rd party licensed controller is needed, as you will connect it to the K2 controller port instead of using the PS5 DualSense controller. We are continuing to work on this issue, but we cannot comment on when the DualSense controller will be supported.


The PS5 update for 3rd party controllers was released as part of firmware V1.2.115 . This update does NOT work with the Sony DualSense controller, however it does allow full function with audio on PS5 games using the following 3rd party controllers:

  Qanba Dragon Joystick (PS4)

  Razer Panthera EVO (PS4)

  HORI Real Arcade Pro.N Hayabusa (PS4/PS3/PC)

  HORI Real Arcade Pro.4 KAI (PS4)

  HORI Mini 

  Razer Raiju


The 3rd party controller plugs into the controller port on the K2 and your mouse and keyboard connect normally. The PS5 controller is not needed in this configuration.

We've got some work still to do to get the PS5 controller working first, but I expect it won't take long after we get that going. I spoke with engineering today and they are still working on the PS5 controller so I expect it will take a few weeks based on our previous experience with getting the PS4 compatibility when that console launched.

I really appreciate all the hard work of the team, you have no idea how helpful this will be - I'm experiencing a lot of pain with the dreadful PS5 controller playing Demon's Souls, and hope to be able to use the xbox elite v2.


Wishing you a most happy holiday!

We will be releasing a beta build next week for those who want to try it, but it requires a 3rd party controller at this time. We have been able to get the PS5 to work with PS5 games using K2, but only with 3rd party controllers, not the PS5 controller yet. I will post the compatible controllers and the details when we release the firmware.

Please let us know what mouse, keyboard you are using.

What is "strike pack" that you mentioned isn't working?

Did you already confirm it does not work with K2 on PS5?

We have not tested the Fighting Commander but we have tested these Hori models and they all work, so if you haven't yet tested the Fighting Commander it's possible it may work.

  • HORI Real Arcade Pro.N Hayabusa (PS4/PS3/PC)
  • HORI Real Arcade Pro.4 KAI (PS4)
  • HORI Mini (PS4)
