Sony on Tuesday says that the PlayStation 5 is “on track for launch in this holiday season” despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The company made the announcement as part of its fiscal 2019 earnings release today.
“Regarding the launch of PlayStation 5, although factors such as employees working from home and restrictions on international travel have presented some challenges in regards to part of the testing process and the qualification of production lines, development is progressing with the launch of the console scheduled for the 2020 holiday season,” Sony says in its report. “At this point in time major problems have not arisen in the game software development pipeline for Sony’s own first-party studios or its partners’ studios.”
Meanwhile, Microsoft has also announced that its upcoming Xbox Series X console is geared up for a holiday 2020 launch. However, Xbox chief Phil Spencer warned that software development could still be disrupted. Still, we can hope to see the Xbox Series X console in this holiday.
Sony, on the other hand, is likely to prioritize at least some exclusive PS5 games to promote sales of the new console. the company just announced new PlayStation Studios branding for its first-party titles, which were perhaps the biggest selling point for the PS4. In addition to that, Sony has also revealed the specs, logo, and controller, but hasn’t revealed any further details.
