PS5 Unlikely To Launch Before 2020 - Developer Sources

Sony Might Roll Out the Next Generation PlayStation 5 This Year Sony might announce the new version of PlayStation this year

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.

Regardless, both PlayStation 5 and the next Xbox are probably eighteen to thirty months away or so, which means we'll have plenty of time to go over these options in depth.

Jason Schreier of Kotaku spoke to about a dozen developers at different gaming studios.

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. They added that they expect the PS5 to launch sometime in 2020, though they warned that plans for a multi-year project keep shifting both forward and backward.

The source suggests that while an imminent release is unlikely, Sony could be forced into action by surprise moves from other companies.

Rumours that the PlayStation 5 is coming this year are well off-base, according to Kotaku. As per some online reports, the Japanese technology giant Sony may announce the next generation Playstation 5 this year.

Reports claim that the legal battle between Apple includes many legal suits and a myriad number of appeals. The legal battle has been protracted, and it involves multiple lawsuits and a dizzying number of appeals.

Sources told Kotaku that Sony was looking at "every possible date".

Last week, SemiAccurate claimed that Sony had shipped a large number of PS5 development kits to game developers.

A dev kit is an early builds of a console's likely hardware, and early dev kits are usually just a PC built to a certain spec. As such, even if there are any such devkits they may be well disguised. By comparison, games that play on the PS4 Pro also work on PS4.

Being attentive to reports gives you that Sony provided the devkits of PS5 to several studios. To be precise, he says there is 75% probability it would launch in 2020 and 25% probability of a PlayStation 5 release date in 2019.

We've heard many a time about individual developers and their games doing surprisingly well on the Nintendo Switch, regardless of whether or not it's an entirely new release or has in fact just made a transition onto Nintendo's hybrid-console platform.
