Sony plans to remove a software feature that many PlayStation 5 users may not even know exist. In the fall of 2022, the company will end support for Accolades. As the name suggests, awards allow you to praise players you meet online for sportsmanship and good behavior. Sony launched the feature alongside the PS5, but now plans to remove it as it isn’t widely used.

“The feature hasn’t seen the level of usage we expected, so we’re refocusing our efforts,” the company said in a statement spotted by . “We encourage the community to continue sending positive messages to each other.” Unsurprisingly, Sony is making the decision to stop making awards.
