Sony has announced that they will be revealing more details regarding the release of the PS5. The news was shared on Twitter and didn’t provide much in the way of new details when it comes to the system. The good news is that we know when the PS5 reveal is happening and what platform it can be found on. According to Sony, the announcement will be hosted on the PlayStation Blog website at 4pm GMT, on March 18, 2020.
It will be interesting to see how PlayStation deals with the extra server strain, considering how many more people will be able to watch the news this week.
A lot of people in the UK will be working from home, meaning there could be a lot of interest in finding out what is being planned for the PlayStation 5.
WILL WE FIND OUT WHEN THE PS5 IS COMING OUT?
The PS5 release date has become a topic of much debate, considering the level of disruption affecting the tech industry right now.
There’s a growing number of analysts who predict that a PS5 release date delay is possible in 2020.
This is due to the disruption being caused by the Coronavirus on the global economy and also on key supply chains.
A shortage in parts could lead to a higher price, or even a delay in when the PS5 can be released in 2020, or beyond.
Microsoft faces the same problems and so far, we haven’t heard anything more about when the Xbox Series X will be released.
And it seems unlikely that we will find out when the PS5 is coming out during this latest event.
So far, Sony has only said that PS5 architect, Mark Cerny, will be providing further insight into what the PS5 can do.
There has been no mention of a release date confirmation during the event being hosted by Sony.
Here’s what Sony has said about the March 18 PS5 event: “Tomorrow at 4pm GMT / 5pm CET, PS5 lead system architect Mark Cerny provides a deep dive into PS5’s system architecture and how it will shape the future of games.
“Watch tomorrow on PlayStation Blog: https://blog.eu.playstation.com.”
The best we can hope for is that Sony reiterates its plans to launch the PlayStation 5 console during 2020.
The news marks the first big PS5 announcement from Sony since October 2019, during which we learnt about the PS5’s controller.
The tech giant also confirmed that its next-gen PlayStation console would be out during holiday 2020.
That announcement was the second PS5 news drop that took place during an exclusive Wired interview.
The first, which was published last April, revealed the PS5 would be capable of 8K visuals and ray-tracing graphics.
This means that tomorrow’s PS5 live stream will mark the first dedicated event Sony has held on its own to announce details on the PS5.
Plenty of new details could be shared during the event and there might even be new gaming footage displayed.
And that could provide a better picture of what new projects are being worked on for the PS5.
