PS5 Job Listing

A Sony Job Listing Suggests That The PS5 Is Releasing In October

We don’t know a whole lot about the PS5 yet, but the release date could be closer than we think.

A job listing for Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan suggests that the PS5 will be releasing in October. Traditionally, new consoles have launched in November (including the PS4 and PS3), so it’d be a little bit of a surprise to see the PS5 release so early, but it would be welcomed nonetheless.

The job listing says: 

We will handle the trial purchasing of PlayStation hardware products. We will select the best suppliers from domestic and overseas parts partners, and adjust the specifications of hardware parts and production capacity in cooperation with the design department and quality assurance department to create PlayStation 5 scheduled to be released in October 2020. In addition, the development-mass production shift.

It’s expected that we’ll see the PS5 properly revealed in June, which would leave roughly four months until release.

UPDATE: Sony has responded to Famitsu and said that this listing was an error. You can read more about that HERE.
