Sony's Next PS5 Announcement Set For August - Report
Although plans could certainly change, a new report suggests Sony has plans for a PS5 event later in August.
Sony have already announced a State of Play for August, but tempered expectations of the 40-minute event by stating that it would focus primarily on PS4 games. It made it clear that the event would not feature new PS5 exclusives or news on either additional hardware or potential pricing, the latter of which is still being strongly debated amongst fans.
In a Bloomberg report focused on Sony's recent financial results, the company does state that it has plans for another event in August that will be all about the PS5. No other details about the event were shared, other than wording that suggests plans could still change as the months progress.
"An official at the Sony PlayStation unit, who asked not to be identified because the plan is not yet public, said Sony's next announcement regarding the PlayStation 5 is tentatively scheduled for this month," the report reads (via Nibel).
Both Microsoft and Sony have yet to reveal prices for the Xbox Series X and PS5 respectively. Sony has two versions of the PS5 launching this holiday, with the second version omitting the disc-drive. Microsoft reportedly will host another event in August after its games showcase in late July, which will supposedly feature the reveal of the rumored cheaper and less powerful Xbox, codenamed Lockhart.
