The president of Sony and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida implies the next-generation of Playstation consoles launch is already being planned.

Sony President Shares “It’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware”

He shared the importance of having a future console version to the Financial Times, while not specifically naming it PS5:

At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware.

His statement was in response to the discussion about the future of Sony and the growing trend of mobile gaming making an impact worldwide as consumers adopt more of these games. It seems that Sony’s future will rely on a future console which is not really shocking news but it does instil the vision of gaming for their company.

While we have known for some time now a new console is underway, this is a first for Sony to focus on the necessity of a next-generation console. When the console will release is still unknown with predictions of 2021 or even next year by one Japanese firm, but none has been confirmed by Sony.

    Earlier this year Sony explicitly said the next console would come out in "3 years". Given how early in the year it was said, any date from late 2020 to late 2021 would reasonably fit.

    Also we know from that the developer kits went out months ago and that the console will have 8 Ryzen cores and a "Navi" based GPU somewhere in the 1x teraflop range.
