Analyst Daniel Ahmed recently stated that a number of Sony first-party studios already have PlayStation 5 development kits.
Rumored to be announced at PlayStation Experience 2019 with a 2020 release date, the next-gen console isn’t likely to be a major deviation from the PS4 design-wise. The PlayStation 5 is expected to use an AMD Ryzen processor and feature 8-cores.
Sony announced last year that the PlayStation 4 is nearing the end of its lifecycle. However, a recent GDC-published ‘State of Industry’ report suggests there’s still a lot more in store for current consoles.
