Next generation gaming console
Fans worry that the PS5 may be released later than planned. Coronavirus transmission can cause economic losses and possible bottlenecks in delivery. Now Sony has apparently made several comments on this.
Due to the spread of the corona virus, incident after incident was cancelled, curfews were imposed, and the economy was threatened with devastating consequences. Fans worry that Sony's PS5 plan will also be affected.
PlayStation 5 is scheduled to be released at the end of 2020. Will publication be postponed to 2021? According to technology magazine LetsGoDigital, Sony Interactive Entertainment's Amsterdam-based public relations firm BAAS has announced that so far the virus has spread without any delay.
Sony agent apparently corrects statement
Later, Sony's agent contacted the magazine again and stated that the agent could not discuss the matter publicly. These are strange events. A statement that the agency had not intended to leak may have previously been leaked and then corrected.
A few weeks ago, well-known analyst Michael Pachter did not pose any real threat to the PS5 release, as console makers would not be as difficult as smartphone makers. Sony can also make game consoles in countries other than China, but the virus has spread to many countries.

Pachter also pointed out that if the corona crisis persists, the release may be delayed, and it now seems likely that this will happen.
Netzwelt's editors also believe that PS5 or even Xbox Series X may be released before the end of 2020, but it is ultimately up to the publisher to decide. In mid-March, Sony showed the technical data of the PS5, which has yet to be fully revealed.
