Sony confirms next-generation PlayStation console


Sony has confirmed that it is creating a next-generation PlayStation console to succeed the PlayStation 4.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Sony president and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida stated: “At this level, what I can say is it’s essential to have a next-generation {hardware}.”

Kenichiro didn’t verify if this console will probably be known as the PlayStation 5 or when it will likely be launched. Nevertheless, some business analysts are predicting we may see the next-generation console in 2020 or 2021 – whereas others predict it could possibly be as quickly as Christmas 2019.

Sony Interactive Leisure’s CEO John Kodera has already confirmed the PlayStation 4 is coming to the end of its life cycle, so affirmation of a next-generation PlayStation console isn’t a surprise.

Relying on when it is launched the brand new console could possibly be going head-to-head with the next Xbox – codenamed Xbox Scarlett – which is rumored to be arriving in 2020.
