New PS5 report may be bad news for console release date

The PS5 is set to release this holiday season. When will it finally be released? We do not know. How much will it cost? We do not know. What is the launch of the game? We do not even know this. Which we know is that Sony is planning a global release, or at least that’s what we thought it was doing. Now, it seems that it will not do this at all. Rather, it seems that the PS5 will be released first in the United States and Canada, before it arrives in other markets.

The news doesn’t come via Sony’s official PR mouth, but a new one Call of duty Black Ops Cold War The trailer has been uploaded by the official PlayStation YouTube channel. At the end of the video, it is noted that the PS5 is releasing this holiday season – possibly in November – in the United States and Canada. Just below this, it is noted that the console is coming to the “rest of the world” in late 2020.

As one finds out for “late 2020”, who knows. It is expected that the PS5 will drop in November 2020, so it is likely to release in late 2020. As for why Sony would do this, it would likely be down to a supply issue, which is easy to imagine being a problem given the ongoing epidemic.

Unfortunately, for now everything here should be taken with a grain of salt. While the information comes from a reliable source – literally the PlayStation YouTube page – it has not been officially confirmed (or denied) by Sony’s PR branch.

The PlayStation 5 is set to release in the North American market at least this holiday season. At the moment of publication, there is no word on the exact release date or price point. However, there are current rumors and reports that we will answer both of these questions this month.
