May 9th, 2020, and nobody knows what the Playstation 5 (PS5) console looks like. To put that into context, we’ve known what the Xbox Series X looks like since December. And we just recently found out what the PS5 controller — the DualSense — looks like When this will change, who knows. Sony hasn’t provided a reveal date for the console, nor has it even hinted at one. However, a new rumor may have just spilled the next-gen beans for it.
According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, the PlayStation 5 event may be going down soon. How soon? Well, the reputable industry insider suggests it will go down sometime between early June and mid-June. By itself, this claim should be taken with a grain of salt
Of course, with the coronavirus pandemic still disrupting society and postponing events right and left, it’s quite possible that even if this window is accurate, it may not stay accurate. Everything is constantly changing right now. In fact, I’m fairly confident in saying the PS5 reveal would have happened already if not for the coronavirus pandemic, which has been impacting just about every facet of PlayStation’s business.
In addition to the console, Sony will likely also use the event to reveal some big PS5 games.
The PlayStation 5 is currently scheduled to release sometime this holiday season. At the moment, it’s unclear when exactly the console will launch or how much it will cost, but we should get all of this information and more sometime in June.
