This is good news for players currently stuck with online IDs they regret or have just become outdated over time.
Sony have stated the beta will be released for a limited selection of users in November 2018. With a full release of the program available to everyone else sometime in 2019. It looks as though you will keep your original ID, with your new ID acting as a sort of Nickname.
