Best answer: Yes. Any current PlayStation Plus subscription you have right now on PS4 does carry over to PS5. You do not need to buy a separate membership and your remaining time rolls over.

What is PlayStation Plus?

PlayStation Plus is a premium subscription service that Sony offers to PlayStation users. For $60/year, members get access to online multiplayer, Share Play, and 100GB of Cloud storage. In case you weren't aware, Share Play allows people to invite friends to their game even if their friend doesn't own a copy.

PlayStation Plus also gifts subscribers two free games every month and offers exclusive discounts on games on the PlayStation Store.

Will my PlayStation Plus carry over to PS5?

Yes. So long as you're using the same PlayStation account on PS5 that you were on PS4, everything should be good to go. PS Plus memberships also transitioned from PS3 to PS4 just fine when the console released in 2013, so the precedent has been set.

When announcing the PlayStation Plus Collection, Sony even said, "The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price."

Can I still get PlayStation Plus on PS4?

Yup! PlayStation Plus on PS4 isn't going away any time soon. While benefits are subject to change at Sony's discretion, you should still be able to buy it for years to come.
