At the end of the week, we received more unconfirmed rumors about the PlayStation 5. These were circulated by former Gameblog journalist Julien Chièze, who refers to anonymous industry sources.
In recent weeks, various analysts went beyond the launch window of the PlayStation 5 and agreed in principle that probably at the end of 2019 or early 2020 is expected to be the PS4 successor.
Similarly, the former Gameblog journalist Julien Chièze, who refers to his anonymous sources of information. It is said that several developers are already working on PS5 titles, which will be completed by the end of 2019 or early 2020. Therefore, it is expected that the PlayStation 5 will be launched in the same period.
PlayStation 5: Other rumors about Sony’s new console
Since Sony delivered so far no final Dev kits, the launch titles of the console are currently based on correspondingly powerful PCs. But what will Sony new console technically have under the hood? According to Chièze, a big jump is unlikely, as Sony’s main concern is to offer the console at a mass-market price. Just like the PS4 is therefore a price of 399 US dollars are targeted.
In the technical field, Chièze’s goal is to provide developers with a platform that can render games in native 4K at 60FPS, without restricting developers in other areas such as the physics engine or artificial intelligence. In addition, the insiders would like to know that the PlayStation 5 comes up with a hardware architecture that allows backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 4.
Finally, it is reported that Sony will probably decide to cut upcoming blockbusters such as “Death Stranding” or “The Last of Us Part 2” initially on the PS4 Pro and then publish them for the PS5 – in a technically revised form, understood.
Since we are dealing here with unconfirmed rumors, the information from Chièze should of course be enjoyed with the necessary caution.
