Kotaku report: PS5 release unlikely until 2020 at the earliest

However, for the PlayStation 5 to launch this fall, it should already have entered mass production.

Meanwhile, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter told WCCFTech that there was "very low probability" of the PS5 releasing this year. However, the plans are always shifting.

The report goes on to say that, in the past, Sony has asked studios to keep these devkits in locked rooms and restrict access to only a small number of people.

A recent online rumor suggested the successor to PlayStation 4 will launch in 2018, but PlayStation 5 is unlikely to be released until 2020 at the earliest, according to a report from Kotaku's Jason Schreier citing several game development sources. At some point, Sony's probably looked at every possible date.

Sony has also recently updated some of the games that include The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Rachet & Clank, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to use the latest hardware support of the PlayStation 4 Pro for better gameplay experience. While it was previously rumored that dev kits for the PlayStation 5 had been sent out to developers, with this speculation suggesting that the PS5 would be released sooner rather than later, the console is instead more likely to launch in 2020 than it is in the next two years.

Previous reports and rumors had originally pegged the release of the PlayStation 5 to be sometime this year.

While opponents have failed to hurt either team domestically, they have found life tougher in the Champions League . On April 10, 2007, Manchester United thrashed Roma 7-1 in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Those developers that have formed the tier 1 of the circle and even Sony's own studios have the impression that a 2019 release is out of the question, unless Sony is making some drastic roster changes.

That's unclear. Like Microsoft with the Xbox One X, the PS4 Pro is the first time Sony has taken a half step with its console.

Also in the report is word that the PS5 will play games that do not run on PS4, so this sounds like it could be a big step up.

One interesting thing Schreier did learn is that most think the PlayStation 5 will run games that won't run on PlayStation 4 - another incremental, backwards compatible upgrade isn't expected.

If Sony has any hardware announcements to make or to tease, that could happen during E3 2018 in June.
