Sony has confirmed that the PS5 is “on track for launch in this holiday season”. That means you can expect the new console in time for Christmas 2020.
Although factors such as employees working from home and restrictions on international travel have presented some challenges in regards to part of the testing process and the qualification of production lines, development is progressing with the launch of the console scheduled for the 2020 holiday season.
At this point in time, major problems have not arisen in the game software development pipeline for Sony’s own first-party studios or its partners’ studios.
Sony also revealed that it has now sold more than 110million PlayStation 4 units globally. The console came out in 2013, and has likely eclipsed sales of its rival.
