PS5 Release Date Will Be In Late 2020

ps5 release date

After months of rumor and speculation we now know for sure that the PS5 release date will not be in 2019 and that we will instead be looking at a late 2020 release for Sony’s next-gen console.

PS5 Release Date Set For Late 2020

In an exclusive interview with tech journal Wired, lead system architect Mark Cerny confirmed that the PS5/PlayStation 5 or whatever it ends up being called, will not release in 2019:

“The “next-gen console,“ as he refers to it repeatedly, won’t be landing in stores anytime in 2019.” states the Wired article.

Adding extra fuel to the fire is a recent reveal by the Ace Research Institute that the PS5 will launch in late 2020. Of course, this date makes a lot of sense when you consider that Microsoft is positioning the Xbox Scarlett for a holiday 2020 launch, too.

Call of Duty 2019 Coming To PS5?

Discovered on LinkedIn, a new Infinity Ward job listing requests the services of an Associate Game Designer. “Come work with the game industry’s brightest on an exciting, unannounced next gen title,” reads the first sentence of the job description.

Infinity Ward have only ever worked on the Call of Duty series. Currently, development on the franchise is shared between three developers, the other two being Treyarch and Infinity Ward.

The studios alternate development, and following the release of Treyarch’s Call of Duty Black Ops 4, 2019 is the turn of Infinity Ward. So, the studio’s next came is a Call of Duty game which will release the back end of 2019.

Some fans think that the fact that the listing mentions it’s a next gen game might mean that PS5 is set to launch in late 2019. Why mention next-gen if the next Call of Duty is not a next-gen game?

It’s a good question to be fair, but it seems too early. Especially considering most of the past rumors and whispers from within the industry suggest a PS5 release in 2020.

The next game in the franchise following Black Ops 4 is rumoured to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. Though it’s yet to be revealed, the first inkling that Infinity Ward are heading in that direction stems from the fact that some of the development team previously from Respawn Entertainment also worked on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2.

    Selling 8.1 million is a lot. A 9,000 drop is very small. These analyst are never right. Sony is not going to rush out the PS5 before milking PS4 to the last drop. They are making tons of profits, which is more important than how many consoles they sell in acquarter. PS4 has yet to retail at $200 dollars. There is not enough of a drop to release PS5 by March which they never release before the fall anyway. It wouldn’t make logical sense at all.
