PlayStation 5 would be released no sooner than 2020

Death Road To Canada

However, one of these insiders did note that Sony's plans are always subject to change.

We're now approaching the five year anniversary of the PS4's initial launch.

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. A report from SemiAccurate claimed a few days ago that Sony was planning to release the PS5 console later this year.

PlayStation 5 games will reportedly not be playable on older systems, which could indicate that it will be featuring a massive hardware upgrade. 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. It's possible we'll see a tease at E3, but I think it's more likely we'll see a brief tease at a dedicated PlayStation event like PSX towards the end of the year or perhaps early next year - with a release in 2019 or 2020. A new report from Kotaku suggests that the PlayStation 5 release date is still at least a couple of years away.

Another rumour making the rounds is that a large number of dev kits had already been distributed to studios.

Schreier goes on to claim that while information regarding the PS5 is "floating around", it's far less than what would be expected if the console was set for release in 2018 or 2019.

"Super early devkits are often PCs with the CPU and GPU", said one of Schreier's sources, who said that while early PlayStation 5 development kits may be in the wild, it does not necessarily mean that the console is launching soon.

Another big detail that was mentioned in the reports is that the PlayStation 5 will apparently not be able to play any of the current PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro games.

Despite the launch of the PS4 taking place almost five years ago, iterative upgrades such as the PS4 Pro should ensure that this console cycle lasts longer than usual.

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