When to Expect the PlayStation 6: A Closer Look at the Release Window
Sony has yet to announce any plans for a new PlayStation console, but in an industry of intense competition, the development and production of their next installment is likely well underway. With the ongoing effort for Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard, a variety of documents have been leaked that may have revealed some details about the PlayStation 6’s release window.
According to these documents, Call of Duty’s exclusive connection to Sony in the future may have a significant impact on the release window for the PlayStation 6. The documents also suggest that a large part of the PlayStation 6’s release strategy will focus on the console’s ability to handle the latest installment of the popular franchise, Call of Duty. This shift in focus could potentially mean the PlayStation 6 will launch in 2027, a full 8 years after the launch of the PlayStation 5.
The documents also point to a shift in the way Sony will be handling its upcoming console. The PlayStation 6 could be the first Sony console to feature backward compatibility with PlayStation 5 games. It will also likely come with a range of enhanced features such as enhanced graphics, improved UI, and faster loading times.
While there is still no official word from Sony about the PlayStation 6’s release window, the leaked documents suggest the console could become available as early as 2027. With the exclusive ties Call of Duty has to Sony and the rumored enhancements, it looks like the PlayStation 6 could be a remarkable piece of hardware. Fans of the franchise, and PlayStation fans in general, will have to wait to see what Sony has in store for their next installment.
