Sony PlayStation 5 unlikely to launch before 2020

Sony Might Roll Out the Next Generation PlayStation 5 This Year

PlayStation 5 games will reportedly not be playable on older systems, which could indicate that it will be featuring a massive hardware upgrade.

Two people that were directly familiar with Sony's new console said it is unlikely to arrive before 2020, although Sony's plans could change depending on what Microsoft does.

Meanwhile, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter told WCCFTech that there was "very low probability" of the PS5 releasing this year. As reported by GameSpot, game developers have also not yet received any "devkits" for them to start working on titles for the new gaming console. Some of those insiders - who are not identified by name - state that they have firsthand knowledge of Sony's console plans and don't believe that the PlayStation 5 will be released in 2018 or 2019. "On a multi-year project, a lot can happen to shift schedules both forward and backward", one source said. The "super early devkits" are often PCs with the CPU and GPU.

Previous PlayStation 5 rumors have pegged the console's release date to as early as 2019 and as late as 2021, but Sony has so far not revealed any official information regarding the next PlayStation console.

Whilst Max Verstappen looks set to remain a controversial character in the sport, his talent is undeniable. This miscalculation led to Verstappen striking Hamilton as he attempted to avoid Alonso.

Reports as well said that Sony is allowing only a few selected people to get their hands on the devkits, and has asked studios to lock those in a room. Since we are discussing the PlayStation, let's have a quick glance at pricing details of the now available version of PlayStation which is the PS 4 pro.

Last week, we posted a report from SemiAccurate which focused on the upcoming PlayStation 5 hardware; the rumor also suggested that several development kits had gone out and as such, the console's launch date could be closer than expected. The PlayStation 5 release date is unlikely before 2020, so the PS4 owners do not have to worry about upgrading just yet.

If we take a look at how Sony has done things in the past, we see that there was a gap of 7 years between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The PlayStation 4 Pro came out in November 2016, and Xbox One X released in November past year.
