In 2019 April, Mark Cerny officially announced the Play Station 5. The day we all hoped for and are waiting eagerly, before the Sony’s president and CEO, Kenichora Yoshida has confirmed that there are plans for a successor to the PS4. Sony Interactive Entertainment America boss, Shawn Layden, officially confirmed that PS4 Pro won’t be the last we will see new of the PlayStation brand. The PS5 is coming it is going to happen and it will be the best gaming console the gaming world has ever had!
While at the time he didn’t confirm the name “PLAYSTATION5”, this type of confirmation from a high-level executive is all we needed to remove any remaining doubts about the future of the PlayStation brand. Since consoles release in the holiday months, we believe the PlayStation5 will come out in November of 2020. Gamers all over are excited and can’t wait to get their hands on the PS5.
Sony PS5 Console:
This would be slightly before the period described by John Kodera, but it’s less likely that Sony would wait until the holiday of 2021 to release a new console. Of course, that all depends on whether the PS5 is a traditional console. We’re still considering the possibility that the PS5 could be a could-based console that streams games. We’ve heard opinions from Wedbush Securities Analyst, Micheal Pachter who is famous for his forecasts in the game industry.
Sony PS5 Release Date:
Latest predictions come from the 1099 podcast where he claimed that the PS5 will most likely make a debut in 2019 or 2020. The PS5 2020 Release Date will be in November 2020.
So, to Micheal Pachter, it’s a numbers game. Sony could potentially shift its plans based on financial issues. Right now, Sony is still making more from subscriptions like PlayStation Plus and PlayStation now. With console sales slowing down, this is the primary source of income for them. That being said, I don’t believe they will make any drastic movements, as that could have ripple effects across development, marketing, and other areas of the company.
The thought of solace generations going away is kind of scary. It would remove the inherent excitement and the leap forwarded that a next-generation provides.
