With the PlayStation 5 release date approaching, about 20 months or so, fans are left on edge about the details of it all. While there is still no official word from Sony about release dates or MSRP, there have been some solid speculation on what we can expect.
PlayStation 5 release date
As we now know, 2019 will not see the release of the PS5. In a recent interview with Mark Cerny, he spoke a lot on the hardware that would follow the PlayStation 5. Although no release date was given, Cerny did specify that a 2019 release was not possible. The console has a way to go before development is done and ready for the public, or even an official reveal by Sony.
Analyst Hideki Yasuda, a research analyst known for his predictions in the gaming industry. The focus, according to Yasuda, of the PS5 is to rid the console of the flaws that came with the PS4 (via Twinfinite). All we’ve heard so far about the system is that the hardware will make for a huge difference in console gaming.
This time around, Yasuda came to the conclusion that the PlayStation 5 will see a release sometime in November 2020, with an MSRP of $499.
Do keep in mind that these are an analyst’s predictions, and should not be taken too seriously. These are only speculations and things do change, especially when it comes to rumors.
What games to expect on PS5 first
Since the release for the console is a long wait, there are some games currently in development waiting for a release.
Death Stranding will surely be one of the first to make it as a PS5 exclusive. Only if Hideo Kojima speeds up the process, and does not delay the game even further.
The Last of Us Part 2, is now nearing the end of development, and will likely see a release on both PS4 and PS5. From what we’ve seen so far, the game will heavily benefit on the PS5 based on graphics and performance. Cyberpunk 2077 is also an anticipated title, and will surely see a PS5 release.
For the more annual releases, we can all expect Madden, NBA 2K, Call of Duty, and FIFA titles.
