Analyst: PlayStation 5 Will Launch Next Year on One Condition
With the PS4 dominating this console generation many fans have speculated about what the PS5 can do. The PS4 turns 5 years old this year and has hit the peak of its hardware.
Last year we had reports that the PS5 could release in late 2018 but that seems to have never been the case. A Japanese analyst has stated that the earliest we could see the PS5 would be in 2019 and even that is most likely not happening.
The only way Sony is releasing a PS5 in 2019 is if Sony can obtain the necessary amount of monolithic ceramic capacitors to make enough consoles to ship to retailers. If somehow they could get enough then it is very possible we can see a PlayStation 5 in late 2019.
If they do not manufacture enough consoles then we are looking at a holiday 2020 release around the same time that the Xbox Scarlet is predicted to release.
