Despite the PS5 only being a few years old, gaming fans are always on the lookout for any news about the Sony PlayStation 6 including a possible release date and what’s new in the console. As one of the most popular consoles in the world, Sony’s PlayStation has always been at the forefront of the gaming industry. 

  • With the massive success of the PlayStation 5, many are already wondering what the next iteration of this beloved console will bring.
  • While Sony has yet to announce any official details about the PlayStation 6, there is already plenty of speculation about what we can expect from this highly anticipated gaming system.

When is Sony launching the next PlayStation console?

Fans can expect a new PlayStation console from Sony as early as the end of 2023 or 2024. However, the new console is not going to be the Sony PlayStation 6. Instead, we can expect a PS5 Slim or Pro variant.

  • Sony has not announced a release date for the PlayStation 6 console, but we can definitely speculate based on patterns.
  • As we have observed from previous development life cycles and release trends, it takes six to seven years for a new PlayStation iteration to be complete.
  • Given that the PS5 was launched in November 2020, it’s safe to say that we cannot get our hands on the Sony PlayStation 6 until 2027.

What can we expect from the Sony PlayStation 6?

While we don’t know the exact specifications of the Sony PlayStation 6, it’s likely that it will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in terms of graphics, processing power, and new cutting-edge technologies such as improved virtual reality (VR).

While the PlayStation 5 already supports VR and the new PSVR 2 just showed up in the market, the technology is still relatively new and is plenty of room for improvement.

The PlayStation 6 could integrate more advanced VR technology using the headset, such as improved tracking and higher-resolution displays.

The Sony PlayStation 6 could also bring in new features such as more advanced haptic feedback technology, better voice recognition for natural language commands, and improved integration with the PlayStation Plus streaming service.

What do customers want from the PS6?

Regardless of whether it’s the PS6 or PS5 Pro or Slim, it’s high time that Sony made some changes to the console. Reducing size and bulk, ditching the need for a wireless dongle, and enhancing the internal storage capacities are just a few necessities that fans want to see in the new PS6.
