When is Sony's PS5 reveal? It's a question that we've been asking for months, and the ongoing coronavirus situation certainly hasn't made things any easier to predict. But now, it's looking more and more likely that we're very close to something big. Rampant rumours have been saying that Sony has its next-gen event set for some point over the next few weeks, and the evidence is really starting to pile up.
Earlier in April, reliable source VGC reported that Sony "recently" had plans to reveal the PS5 in May. However, the publication was unsure if the Japanese giant would be forced to alter these plans because of the aforementioned coronavirus. Still, the report gave us something to go on.
And this is where things start to add up. In-the-know GamesBeat reporter Jeffrey Grubb is hinting that Sony's event could take place on the 4th June, but it sounds an actual PS5 hardware reveal could arrive earlier than that. This makes us think that Sony might just unveil the box itself in a blog post or video -- much like it did with the DualSense controller.
Then we've got the tweet that holds this all together. Following the announcement of Microsoft's Xbox Series X event, taking place next week, well known scoop-master Jason Schreier was asked when Sony's event is happening. He replied: "Few more weeks I believe."
Right now, everything is pointing towards Sony's PS5 event happening either later in May, or in early June. Or potentially both -- it's still difficult to say how Sony will handle this. But the bottom line is that the wheels are turning -- it won't be long now until we see the PS5 and its games.

Let’s hope. They’ve been so quiet. In the meantime I’ll just focus on the games I have
Looking forward to Xbox’s reveal event for some 3rd party 🤓
This is pretty much aligned to what was said by the Sony CFO in the past where the reveal with be pretty much the same period as PS4 which is June. Really can't wait for it.
As long as AC Valhalla and WD Legion are launch titles and the majority of my PS4 collection is playable, I'm there day one. Just give me a price and a date.
Sony might as well wait to see how much better the 3rd party games on Xbox SX are going to look before doing anything. Might as well let Microsoft have the moment and counter program it .
@Grimwood Jason Schreier absolutely does know a lot more than most people.
I bet that Playstation will either unveil the hardware through a blogpost or reveal the date of the PS5 blowout event the same day of the Xbox Series X event
@elchebib Or it could be any random day before the Xbox event similar to the controller reveal 😂
OPM Official PlayStation Magazine UK is having PS5 Info in their latest magazine, about the controller. But it's next months cover if real, PS5 it's Coming.
I feel Sony will reveal the console soon. May 7th hmmm?
i wonder when the console will go on pre order,if MS has their pre orders up after the show next week than sony won't wait to respond,right?
It looks like late 2021 for PS5......Just a guess.
@Grimwood yeah, he's got a pretty extensive collection of insider sources regarding game development. He's literally written a book about it.
Feels like vaporware already.
I'm so ready for ps5 to drop!!!!
Hurry up SONY
I wouldn't be surprised if they revealed it in a blog post right before or right after the XBOX showcase.
@Number09 It's already been stated that it will launch during the holidays this year.
@Shepherd_Tallon If they were to do that, it'd certainly be after. Though I doubt it. They'll probably have their own event maybe a few weeks after.
Doesn't mean it won't be delayed
Im busy with my PS4 i have a insane backlog. I need to get money for a 4K tv and after that ill be looking for a PS5.
@stefan771 I'm aware of that, but it's not likely to happen. I'm going by what we know than what may happen.
The new playstation leadership clueless.
@Number09 no. Where did you get that from ? It is confirmed that it is coming late 2020
click bait this is usually said once a week if not more
@InsertUsername @NICK_XP just a hunch..........things change.
@Number09 They do, but still not likely.
