There is still a shortage of PS5 and there is already talk of PlayStation 6

Unless you have spent many hours a week playing console games on PlayStation 4, there are probably still plenty of great PS4 titles that you and many others have yet to complete. But that didn’t stop people from running out and waiting in line to get the PlayStation 5.

And believe it or not, there is already speculation about the PlayStation 6 release date.

When is the Playstation 6 release date?

If you can’t wait to get your hands on the latest and greatest PlayStation console, there’s a good chance you’re already looking for renders and alleged “leaks” about what the PS6 will look like and when it will come out. Even if we don’t have the official answer, we can look back and do some math to try to understand it.

Traditionally, PlayStation consoles have followed a six to seven year release cycle. Let’s take a look at the PS2, for example, which used to be one of Sony’s most popular consoles. Released in 2000, the PS2 was in such demand that it had one of the longest lifespans of any video game console ever made – Sony produced it for good. 13 years .

However, that doesn’t mean they haven’t released another console in the meantime. The PlayStation 3 made its debut in 2006, six years after the PS2. The PlayStation 4 arrived seven years later, in 2013. And the PS5 hit the scene another seven years later, in November 2020.

Could this mean that PlayStation 6 is already in development?

It is evident that Sony takes about six or seven years to research, develop and mass produce a new console before its release. If they continue to follow these trends, might gamers look forward to the PS6 as early as November 2026?

Eh, it probably won’t.

At the time of writing, the PlayStation 5 has already been out for more than a year, but supply chain problems have made it difficult for some people to get a PS5. (The holidays probably didn’t help either.)

Add to that the chip shortage that has arisen as a result of the world going up in smoke as a result of COVID-19. The shortage has hit nearly every single sector, but computing, gaming and automotive have been hit particularly hard.

Considering that so many people are still trying to grab a PlayStation 5 and that physical console production is more difficult than ever, it’s not hard to imagine a longer wait for the PlayStation 6 to be released.
