It’s no secret that Sony has been hard at work to deliver its own next-generation console. Sony made a surprise announcement that they are bringing out the PlayStation 5 this coming year. Unfortunately, the announcement came through a Sony PlayStation blog post so there is nothing footage wise that we can release or even images right now. Instead, we just got a brief little post to confirm that the console is coming.
Unveiled by president and CEO at SIE, Jim Ryan, the PlayStation 5 is confirmed to be in development with plans to release it in the market by the holidays of 2020. If you were looking to get some fine details of what this console offer when it does launch against the competition then you’re out of luck. Sony will be unveiling more information likely throughout the coming year as it reaches its intended launch window.
Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring. Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.
What we do know is that the PlayStation 5 will be able to support ray-tracing which should offer new dynamic lighting and sound effects. Likewise, in the past, there were talks of the upcoming console offering an SSD, a drive to store games that will be significantly faster when not only booting the system up but also loading video games as well.
For now, we at least know that Sony is planning to release its next-generation console within the holidays of 2020 so we have plenty of time for Sony to make new announcements.
