PlayStation 5 games will reportedly not be playable on older systems, which could indicate that it will be featuring a massive hardware upgrade.
Because of this, the report argues that the PS5 could be released in 2018. The sources said that multi-year plans for projects are always shifting, but it may be too much of a stretch to think that the PlayStation 5 will arrive this year.
Sony PlayStation fans may have been rather rather eager for the advent of the next console, but it now appears that the Japanese company has no plans to introduce the console before 2020.
"Over the past month, I've spoken to dozens of game developers, across a variety of disciplines and studios, about the next generation of consoles".
However, according to Kotaku's sources, the PlayStation 5 console is unlikely to release in 2019.More news: Train service yet again suspended in south Kashmir
Over the last couple of weeks, some wild rumors have been floating around suggesting that PlayStation 5 dev kits are already in the wild, with the console set to release either this year or next year. For comparison, the PS3 launched over six years following the PS2's release in 2000, though with the PS4 Pro having given the console's games a graphical and performance boost, its technology isn't notably outdated.
Those developers that have formed the tier 1 of the circle and even Sony's own studios have the impression that a 2019 release is out of the question, unless Sony is making some drastic roster changes.
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.
"A recent online rumor got people buzzing about a possible 2018 release of PlayStation 5, but that's probably not going to happen". However, the current state of the console industry - especially as it concerns releases like the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X - means that you can't really take anything for granted concerning the likely release date of an upcoming console.
Sony may have an announcement of a hardware or at least a teaser of it by the coming June.
