Aroged, Jakarta – Sony seems to be giving signs again regarding its new Playstation console that will be released. But according to documents published by Sony to the Authorities in the United Kingdom, Sony has not decided to release the Playstation 6 in the next few years.
Sony told Playstation life that maybe in 2027 or 2028 Playstation 6 starts to be launched in the Global market. According to him, the last series of Playstation 5 is still quite new, and ideally this replacement takes place every seven years. If you pay attention to their console release cycle, Playstation 4 when it was released globally in 2013, then followed by Playstation 5 in 2020, then the 6th Playstation will be released in 2027.
If Sony uses the seven-year cycle to launch the console correctly, then the company’s calculations are correct.
