According to recent leaks, Sony is reportedly working on a new PlayStation 6, or technically, PlayStation 5 Pro console, and it may already be in development.
While it has been debated whether the industry’s transition from PS4 to PS5 would allow for upgraded “Pro” consoles, sources suggest that a PS5 Pro device is in the works and may be released soon.
Is another PlayStation console coming soon?
Interestingly, Sony mentioned the possibility of a PlayStation 6 in a recent argument against Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but there have been no official announcements regarding a PS5 Pro. Some may argue that there is no need for such an upgrade, as most games are still released on last-gen consoles as well. In case you need some future references, here is a list of game releases for PS5 and PS4 in 2023.
Reports indicate that the full-fledged PS5 Pro upgrade could be released sometime in late 2024. Some claim to have more details about the console but cannot release them at this time.
Additionally, another source has hinted that Sony has more plans for PS users this generation, which may be related to their InZone line of gaming hardware.
PlayStation 6 is still far from true
The leak also discussed the previously rumored PlayStation 5 with a detachable disk drive, suggesting that the two devices are separate. However, the specifics of the performance upgrade remain unclear.
It is worth noting that the information is still unconfirmed and unverified, and it may not be true at all. Moreover, remember that the only official information regarding the matter is the leaked release window for the PlayStation 6, suggesting that it may not be released until 2028.
The launch window for the PS5 Pro is similar, but this information should be taken with a grain of salt.
Despite conflicting reports, it is clear that Sony has big plans for the future of gaming, and gamers worldwide are eagerly awaiting their next move — especially the integration of Discord as part of their system.
Just as Sony isn’t particularly fond of surprises for their fans, they suddenly dropped a big system update for PS5 recently, and it’s for further enhancing the UX and security features.
