Rumor has it that Sony is planning to release a new gaming console called PS5. Recent reports claim that Sony’s PS5 will have new features. These features would edge up its rivals such as the Xbox and Nintendo consoles. With this, Sony is set to announce the release date in the coming months.


The company is expected to launch new games this year for its PS4 and PS4 Pro in 2018. While the Sony’s gaming consoles are selling well, other console brands are also competing well in the console market.


It can be recalled that back in 2013, Sony launched both the PS4 and Xbox One. This means that a new gaming console is likely possible. Sources claim that PS5 is expected to be released in 2020 while other reports hinted that Sony would announced the new console’s release date sooner.


Will Sony release PS5?



In fact, a recent report noted that the Sony has already released the PlayStation 5 developer’s kit to third-party developers. If this report is true then fans should expect an announcement from Sony the soonest.


Also, the reported release of the PlayStation devkits could be viewed as a positive confirmation of the planned PS5. Another indication of the planned PS5 is that both Nintendo and software giant Microsoft are looking forward to perform best in the console market. Thus, Sony is on the verge of expanding the success it has for PS4.


Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service might be getting an upgraded service. The company wants to provide AAA games to their avid fans.


This information surfaced in the late 2017 during the Sony Corporate Strategy Meeting. In the said meeting, Sony discussed the company’s future directions and other plans including the upgrade of the PS Plus service.
