It’s been 25 years since Sony released the original PlayStation—and four consoles later, the video game system has remained in the spotlight. 

Each new generation has exploded onto the market, beating records and captivating audiences all around the globe. In October 2019, the newest addition to the PlayStation lineup was revealed: the PlayStation 5.

The next console will offer players haptic technology, backward compatibility, Unreal Engine 5, and more. It’s the biggest and best PlayStation yet—and it looks spectacular.

When will the PS5 be released?

A specific date has yet to be revealed for the PlayStation 5, but a “holiday 2020” release window has been confirmed by Sony.

The PS5 should arrive and be available to buy anytime between October 2020 and January 2021. Typically, however, November has been a frequent month for console releases in the past.
