PlayStation 6 release date is sooner than we expected, official documents confirm

Kiss goodbye to that PlayStation 5, because it looks like the PlayStation 6 is far closer than we ever imagined. This is according to documents that show Sony’s next PlayStation console is already looming. Progress never stops, I guess. My wallet wishes it would, though. Let’s take a quick look back at previous PlayStation generations, shall we? The length of time between PlayStation consoles has typically been around five to seven years. The PS2 arrived on the scene a little over five years after the OG PlayStation, the PS3 slid into view over six and a half years after the PS2, and the PS4 dropped seven years after the PS3… the same length of time between the PS4 and PS5. If we assume we’re waiting another seven, maybe eight years, between consoles, that would mean the PlayStation 6 should arrive in 2028 at the earliest. On page 8 of the 22-page document, it’s claimed by Sony that Microsoft had “offered to continue making Activision’s games available on PlayStation only until 2027.”The document continues: “By the time SIE launched the next generation of its PlayStation console (which is likely to occur around [redacted]), it would have lost access to Call of Duty and other Activision titles, making it extremely vulnerable to consumer switching and subsequent degradation in its competitiveness.”The exact planned release year for the PS6 has been redacted from the document, but it doesn’t take a genius to work out the implication of a 2027/2028 launch for the next PlayStation. That’s still a fair way away, of course. For now you’ll want to watch out for the PlayStation 5 Slim and PlayStation 5 Pro, which Sony will no doubt be springing on us in the next few years to really get a little extra cash out of us while they finish work on the PlayStation 6.
