A representative of Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed Famitsu that heMention to the October release window on PS5 is a bug from the work page. The official date is still the end of 2020, without further details.
Along with the price of the new consoles and their initial catalog, another of the doubts that we have for PS5 and Xbox Series X are their release dates. Although many users estimated a release in November, similar to what happened with PS4 and Xbox One in 2013, it seems that Sony will be targeting October.
A job offer for Sony Interactive Entertainment in Rikunabi mentions a procurement manager who should help select the best vendor components to use in PS5 manufacturing. The most interesting is the detail that puts date: "To create the PlayStation 5, scheduled to launch in October 2020".
While the published information is credible, It is still too early to know if all the launch plans will not be affected by the coronavirus, even if Sony officially announces a date.. In any case, the new consoles should be available in the last quarter of the year and probably before the Black Friday shopping dates, which will be held on November 27, 2020.
Slowly, publishers unveil their games for the next generation of consoles, although most will also be available on current machines. That is the case of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, DIRT 5, Dying Light 2, Madden NFL 21, Scarlet Nexus, Gods & Monsters, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 or Watch Dogs Legion, among others. We also know some who will take better advantage of the possibilities of the new machines, such as Godfall
