PS5 Release Date

The PlayStation 5 -- as it's now officially known -- will launch in the holiday period of 2020. A new Wired interview with Sony Interactive Computer Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan confirms this. Obviously we already knew that the Japanese giant was aiming for this release window anyway, but it's nice to have it officially reiterated.

We don't have a full release date yet, though, and we'd be surprised if we hear anything more concrete before next year. It's still unclear whether Sony is planning a big reveal event for the PS5, but it's always seemed likely. In any case, 2020 is going to be an exciting year for PlayStation fans.

Still, it's time to start saving up for the next-gen machine. Will you be there to buy it day one? Break open your piggy bank in the comments section below.
