Document indicates that PS6 may be released in 2028

Release window was given in response to the merger between Microsoft and Activision

Sony is planning to launch the PlayStation 6 from 2028. The launch window for the new generation of consoles was presented by the company in response sent to the UK competition authority regarding the merger between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard, which is still being analyzed by Organs necessary bodies.

The deadline stipulated by Sony for the arrival of the PlayStation 6 is within what is practiced by the company in the latest console releases.

In the document, Sony questions the supply of Call of Duty for the PlayStation only until 2027. This would be the deadline in which Microsoft would have stipulated for the franchise to be available on the competitor’s consoles. The Japanese company claims that the next generation of consoles would suffer a great impact for reaching users without one of the most successful series in the industry.

“Microsoft has offered to continue making Activision games available on PlayStation only through 2027. Likewise, in public comments on October 26, Microsoft said it plans to offer Call of Duty on PlayStation only for as long as it makes sense. A period until 2027 — or any other that would be determined by Microsoft — is inappropriate. By the time SIE released the next generation of its console, it would have lost access to Call of Duty.”

Deadline is within the window of the last generations

Although Sony’s response is not an official date for the PlayStation 6 to hit the market, this is the first time that console fans have a deadline for the new generation to become available. Therefore, over the next six years it is very unlikely that any launch related to a new generation will happen by the Japanese company.

The deadline stipulated by Sony for the arrival of the PlayStation 6 is within what is practiced by the company in the latest console releases. The PlayStation 5, for example, was released in 2020. That would make an eight-year difference between the launch of one generation and another, just one more than seen in recent times. That’s because PlayStation 4 was released in 2013 while PlayStation 3 was released in 2006.
