Fans waiting on PS5 release news may have to keep themselves busy for another few months.
According to the latest rumours, Sony will not be announcing a PlayStation 5 update during the remainder of 2019.
But time is running out for when the big reveal can happen, especially when you consider that November 2020 is the expected release date for the console.
So how long is left until gamers find out about Sony’s PS5 successor?
According to recent online reports, the new PS5 reveal will be happening in February 2020.
To be exact, Sony is planning to reveal the future of PlayStation gaming on February 12.
That means there are still a few months to wait until we find out vital information, like price and design.
Fans have now seen plenty of dev kits but these V-shaped boxes won’t be the consoles that will be hitting shelves.
As always, leaks regarding big tech announcements have to be treated with some caution.
But a recent one shared online has been backed up somewhat by the fact it also predicted a State of Play event before the end of the year and that TLOU2 would be released in May 2020.
This might have still been a lucky guess but it does give the idea of a Sony reveal in February 2020 more backing.
Sony recently announced its plans to hold a new State of Play event later this month, focused on PS4 games.
There won’t be any news regarding the PlayStation 5 console but that doesn’t mean it won’t be worth watching.
We could still be hearing about games coming to the PS5 in the years to the come, with cross-generational titles being planned.
Assasin’s Creed Ragnarok is reportedly one of them, while others like The Last of Us Part 2 expected to follow.
The new Sony State of Play is being held on December 10 and will include plenty of news for PlayStation fans.
A statement from Sony confirms: “The year is almost over, but we’ve got one more State of Play to share with you! It airs Tuesday, 10th December at 2pm GMT / 3pm CET, and you can watch live on Twitch, YouTube and Facebook.
“We’ve got around 20 minutes of new game reveals, release date announcements, new gameplay footage, PlayStation Worldwide Studios updates, and more.
“And it probably bears repeating: Don’t expect any updates related to our next-gen plans in this episode.
“You can watch live on Twitch, YouTube and Facebook, as usual. Can’t wait to see what you think.”
The Last of Us Part 2 was expected to make up a big part of this upcoming event, however, it’s unclear how the recent delay in launch date may have affected Sony’s plans.
One game which is expected to be part of the upcoming State of Play is Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 Remake, which was leaked earlier this month.
