PS5 Unlikely To Launch Before 2020 - Developer Sources

This suggests that at the earliest we'd see a PlayStation 5 in 2020, though Sony could always change plans depending on what its competitors do. The PS4 is almost five years old, and the next-gen console should be just around the corner.

Rumours regarding Sony's next console have been swirling for much of this year, but the sources haven't been reputable, and so we've ignored them.

Kotaku is reporting that the PlayStation 5 will not be released in 2018 as some rumors have suggested. However, for the PlayStation 5 to launch this fall, it should already have entered mass production. Another close source to Sony also noted that if the PS5 was due out this year, it would already be in mass production, which would come as a shock to those now working on the PS4's roster for 2018.

However, according to Kotaku's sources, the PlayStation 5 console is unlikely to release in 2019. After all, those early kits are often generic pieces of hardware that aren't specifically tied to the final design of a next-gen console.

Kotaku's report added that the majority of developers they spoke to, including those at Sony's internal studios, had no knowledge at all of a new PlayStation console. Assuming arly dev kits are in the wild, that still puts the PlayStation 5 on track for a late 2019 or 2020 release. However, there are some people who believe a new console should be seeing the light of day soon, considering it has been quite a number of years since the eighth-generation system's release.

Being attentive to reports gives you that Sony provided the devkits of PS5 to several studios.

It's been almost five years since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launched.

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

While Microsoft has been on a tear making the Xbox One backwards compatible with older games, the PS4 can't run games from the PS3. The original report does not mention backward compatibility between PS4 and PS5.

However, just because logic dictates that it's possible doesn't mean Sony will make that scenario happen.
