Sony has just dropped the first PlayStation 5 details out of nowhere.
Mark Cerny, who was the lead Architect for PlayStation 4 has revealed the first PlayStation 5 details in an exclusive for Wired. This is the first time that Sony has spoken about their next-gen console officially.
It’s been revealed that the console won’t release in 2019 (we’d bet on 2020) and has spent four years in development. It will sport a 8 core AMD Zen 2 and will support ray-tracing with its GPU. It will also have an extremely high-end SSD.
Sony also spoke a lot about Virtual Reality and sound in the article, suggesting that these will both play major arts in the future of the PlayStation brand. It’s also been confirmed that PS4 games will work with the console and so will the previous virtual reality headset.
EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this article stated that the console would be releasing in 2020. This was speculative on our behalf. It has only been stated that it is not releasing in 2019, prompting us to believe it will be 2020.
