Sony already knows when PlayStation 6 will be released, the next console that will carry on the legacy of PS5. It sounds strange, of course, at a time when finding the current generation console – launched just two years ago – is still a lottery. The situation is slowly improving, but for many the jump to the ‘next-gen’ is still a chimera, especially now that the price of PlayStation 5 has even been increased due to inflation.
When will PlayStation 6 come out? Sony knows —
However, this period of crisis in PS5 production and distribution does not appear to have undermined Sony’s plans. As evidenced by the Japanese company’s statements to the CMA regarding the Microsoft-Activision Blizzard deal, the Tokyo giant states that – if the acquisition were successful – Xbox has offered to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation until 2027. This, according to Sony, would mean PlayStation 6 could hit shelves without that year’s Call of Duty installment, which could push users to move to Xbox. The platform owner even mentions what he thinks could be the PS6 launch window, though the number is hidden in writing [redacted] for confidentiality reasons everything seems to lead to 2027.
Microsoft agrees —
“By the time SIE has launched the next generation of its PlayStation console (which there will probably be [redacted], would have lost access to Call of Duty and other Activision titles, making it extremely vulnerable to consumer loss and a resulting deterioration in its competitiveness,” explained Sony, as reported by GamesRadar+. In its response to the English antitrust authority, Microsoft seems to agree: “the release of the next generation of consoles is planned for autumn 2018 at the earliest,” they report from Redmond. Given that PS4 remained Sony’s flagship for seven years, from 2013 to 2020, PS5 will likely suffer the same fate, barring twists and turns that could lead to a (very unlikely) PlayStation 6 march.
