With the hype surrounding the release of the PlayStation 5 growing and gamers patiently waiting for Sony’s big reveal, it was only a matter of time before rumours and leaks started doing the rounds. The most recent suggests that the PS5 might be officially announced in February next year.
The news comes via NeoGAF, who indicates that Sony will be holding a PlayStation Meeting event on the 12th of February 2020 where they will officially unveil their next console.
If this proves true, it could mean that we will be finishing out the specs, price and, most importantly, the release date for the console.
The leak also reveals that major publishers, such as Square Enix and Ubisoft, have already received invitations.
As far as launch titles go, there is also talk that the upcoming The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima will form part of the games that will release on the new console at launch. Whether this means that both games will release on the PlayStation 4 and 5 isn’t confirmed, but it does make sense, especially since the first The Last of Us was released on the PlayStation 3 and 4.
While this is a rumour and should be taken with a grain of salt, it does match how Sony revealed the PlayStation 4, which coincidently was also announced at a PlayStation Meeting event early in 2013. Along with the PlayStation 5 announcement, the meeting will also see the PSVR2 revealed.
Another leak also alluded that Sony will hold another State of Play stream in November which will not only show off some more gameplay from the upcoming Death Stranding but also reveal the release date for The Last of Us 2, which is said to be in May 2020.
Hopefully, the rumours prove true and we finally get to see Sony’s highly anticipated next-gen console, the PlayStation 5, revealed.
