With the recent release of PlayStation 4 Pro and the success of PlayStation 4, many are now waiting for the arrival of PlayStation 5. As Microsoft will soon drop Xbox 2 or the so-called Project Scorpio, Sony has to counter it's coming with a new gaming console that will go head-to-head to Xbox 1’s predecessor.

It has been said that Microsoft's next gaming platform will be ten times powerful than the Japan-based tech giant’s latest console. Hence, according to reports, Sony is now doing its best to develop its upcoming gadget with the best possible specs and features.

However, in an interview (via GamePro), Sony cleared that it has no concrete plans yet about the next PlayStation 5. But, there are strong assumptions that the new gaming console will have a 4K native resolution that will run the video games at 60 FPS. With that, its upcoming flagship unit might be the best rival Project Scorpio will have in the market.

Most probable release and predictions of PlayStation 5

Speaking to Wall Street Journal in September 2016, the analyst Damian Thong talked about the possible release of Sony’s latest electronic device. In his first prediction, he saw that it might be unveiled at the second half of 2018.

But, he changed his forecast in the new edition of Pachter Factor. Here, he said that PlayStation 5 wouldn't be seen anytime soon. He explained that Sony shouldn’t even bat an eye with the coming of Microsoft’s Project Scorpio because of its recently released Playstation 4 Pro.

The two gaming consoles are said to have the identical backward compatibility and are not bound to have exclusive game titles; thus both will offer the same features.

Although he changed the first prediction, he now strongly believes that the two tech giants would unveil their next flagship devices in 2020.

"Perhaps there will be a PS5 and a PS2 in 2020, and an Xbox Two in 2020,” Factor told Wall Street Journal. “And we will continue to get new consoles every three years that are compatible with the software that was released for the predecessor model Patterns.”
