Sony Might Roll Out the Next Generation PlayStation 5 This Year

It would be nearly suicidal of Sony to steal the spotlight out of PlayStation 4 right when it's more profitable and some of the best games are just coming out.

Schreier goes on to claim that while information regarding the PS5 is "floating around", it's far less than what would be expected if the console was set for release in 2018 or 2019. 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. At some point, Sony's probably looked at every possible date.

After the recent SemiAccurate report, Kotaku has investigated the possibility that a PlayStation 5 could be coming in 2018 or 2019, ruling it out based on the different sources it was able to communicate with during and after the GDC. "It's all about what they think is the best sweet spot in terms of hardware".

A PS5 development kit might be in the wild, however, it could be a "super early" development kit that are "often PCs with the CPU and GPU". Sony released the PlayStation 4 about five years ago. The people he spoke with have not heard of plans for the next-generation console, which should not be the case if it will indeed be launching soon.

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. The PS4 is almost five years old, and the next-gen console should be just around the corner. According to the article's sources, the expectation is that the PlayStation 5 will be a full-blown next-generation console in that it will run games that won't work on PlayStation 4, in essence leaving behind the last generation of hardware as it's been traditional in the console market. The PlayStation 5 release date is unlikely before 2020, so the PS4 owners do not have to worry about upgrading just yet.

Despite the launch of the PS4 taking place almost five years ago, iterative upgrades such as the PS4 Pro should ensure that this console cycle lasts longer than usual. The Pro launched in November of 2016, making it less than two years old.
