Thrustmaster to Release Console-Compatible TSS Handbrake This Year

Hardware 13 April 21, 2018 by

Back in January, Thrustmaster took the wraps off its hefty TSS handbrake. Unfortunately (for console players), it was a PC-only affair. Now, Thrustmaster has announced another TSS is on the way, and this time it’ll be multi-platform.

The news comes courtesy of the the official Thrustmaster Facebook page. The new item will feature unique packaging, but will still be predominantly metal in its construction. Players will also still be able to swap between handbrake and sequential shifter modes.

The French company understands many players use a combination of equipment from different manufacturers. Therefore, the upcoming TSS will come with a proprietary cable allowing players to adapt it to a wide range of sim racing setups.

Racers won’t have to wait long to find out more. Thrustmaster has confirmed the handbrake will be on the show floor at E3 this June, with more information arriving alongside it. As for a release window, the team is aiming for a summer release.

More good news: developers are already introducing compatibility for the TSS in advance of its release. That bodes well for players when it does touch down — stay tuned for more Thrustmaster news as it comes in.
