The PS5 announcement is looming on the horizon and to say that the excitement is palpable is an understatement. Everyone is waiting for Sony to finally show their cards and let us know what the tone will be for the next generation, especially after Microsoft already announced the Xbox Series X. We’ve yet to receive word of a reveal event and Sony has been relatively tight-lipped about the whole thing.
Sony recently added a PS5 section to their website, which might be exciting news initially, but the site is relatively barren for now. The only information present is this quote:
We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation. Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games.
The website does indeed allow you to sign up for email updates, but that’s the extent of it for now. It’s a bit disappointing, especially since we’re so starved for information and insubstantial rumours are floating around all over the place promising a February reveal event. However, Sony probably has an intricate strategy planned to eventually reveal the console and the only thing we can do right now is to be patient. That won’t stop the rumour mill, of course, but we’ll just have to deal with that until we finally get to see what the new black box will look like.
