PS5 announcement could happen later this month, and it might include pre-order details
Gamers around the world are eagerly awaiting the next PS5 announcement. But they might not have to wait much longer. It’s going to happen this later this month, according to new reports.
Sony hasn’t released a lot of news about the PS5 in recent months, and it’s driving people crazy. But that’s about to change because apparently, there’s a planned announcement happening sometime this month, and although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, it’s already kicking up a storm.
Bloomberg reported that a PlayStation official, who preferred to remain anonymous, told them the company is planning to make their next PS5 announcement sometime this month. Sadly, that’s all we know at this point, but it’s a good sign that the ball is rolling ahead of the console’s release towards the end of the year.
It’s also consistent with the company’s claims that they’ll let the world know when pre-orders will be available. Eric Lempel, Sony’s Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing, said “It’s safe to say, we’ll let you know when preorders will happen. We will let you know. It’s not going to happen within minute’s notice.”
Thankfully, that means it’s not going to be a surprise on the many gamers waiting to secure a purchase. “We’re going to let you know, at some point, when you can pre-order PS5,” said Eric. “Please don’t feel like you have to run out and line up anywhere until you receive official notice on how that’ll work.”
It’s not known whether the upcoming announcement will be about pre-orders specifically, or whether it will happen at all. But previous source code leaks suggests they will be happening soon, and if they are, the announcement might be about the alleged one-per-household limit.
Unfortunately, until an official announcement is made, we’ll have to settle for whatever updates we can get at the moment. Still, it seems like an announcement will be happening soon, and we can’t wait to hear more.
