As Sony itself confirmed at the time of the PlayStation 5 announcement, development of the next generation begins as soon as the latest console hits the shelves. Which is exactly why, despite the fact that the PS5 hit the market just over 2 years ago, there are already some expectations regarding what comes next.
Especially since, as it seems, in this new generation, we will not have a Pro version, such have been the difficulties on the production side. After all, can you imagine a Sony launching a more powerful, and more expensive version, when it still hasn’t been able to meet the demand of those who want a simple PS5.
Well, Sony already has a ‘trial’ date for the successor console. PlayStation 6 should hit the market sometime between 2026 and 2027.
PlayStation 6: The next, and last console, already has a date
Next and last? As well? Well, it is undeniable that despite the failure of Stadia, and the slow adoption of other streaming services, the future lies in sending games through your ultra-fast internet connection, to any static or mobile device in your home. , or on the street. This is the future, wherever it may.
Still, the future may be a little far off, and for that very reason, Sony has plans for at least one more console, the PlayStation 6, with a launch date pointing to 2026~2027, depending on how things go until there.
How do we know this?
Interestingly, thanks to the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard by Microsoft, in which in a document, Sony details the importance of Call of Duty for its ecosystem, while also mentioning the PlayStation 6.
Despite the PlayStation 5 being released less than three years ago, Sony seems to be already thinking about the console’s successor. An indication from the Japanese company reveals that the PS6 should be released around 2027.
Before PlayStation 6, we’re still going to say hello to a Slim model!
Honestly, I believe the PS5 Pro model is cancelled, or very close to it. But, the Slim model will really be a reality, still in 2023, or at the latest in 2024.
