Kotaku report: PS5 release unlikely until 2020 at the earliest

PS4 System Update 5.53 Released Ahead of God of War

It has been five years since the arrival of the PlayStation 4 in 2013, which was launched seven years after the PlayStation 3 was rolled out in 2006. Just recently a big juicy rumour from Semi-Accurate suggested we could see a new PlayStation this year. Priced at Rs. 38,990, the PS4 Pro supports 4K resolution gameplay and also comes with HDR capabilities. However, plans can change.

"At some point, Sony's probably looked at every possible date", said the insider.

The source suggests that while an imminent release is unlikely, Sony could be forced into action by surprise moves from other companies.

Schreier also spoke with Sony's first-party studios and third-party developers to ask for information about the PlayStation 5.

US government sources said Washington's assessment of the Saturday attack was that chemical weapons were used. The United Nations also weighed in, saying that the alleged use of chemical weapons if true is "abhorrent".

The PS5 is unlikely to release in 2019, let alone make its way to retail this year, according to a new report quoting sources close to the development of the console.

Another rumour making the rounds is that a large number of dev kits had already been distributed to studios. The publication added that the console would launch in 2018. As per some reports from the web, the next generation PlayStation 5 might be rolled out this year.

One source told Kotaku that SemiAccurate's statement was confusing. Even early devkits might not resemble a PlayStation at all. 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. If the PS5 follows the same time frame that would put a release in 2020. We chose to abstain from talking about it at the time because a PS5 launch in 2018 sounded laughable, particularly given that the PS4 Pro has only been out for around 18 months.

Don't worry, the next generation of consoles isn't going to be full of lifeless games that feel like they were created by a computer, but as engines get smarter, they will be able to procedurally generate more content on their own based on predetermined values set by the artists and creators.
