PlayStation 5 Release Window Isn’t Budging, Even With COVID-19 Around

COVID-19 sure has wrecked a lot of plans, be it offline events or game development schedules. At the very least, it’s not affecting the upcoming release of PlayStation 5.

According to Sony’s recently-out company-wide fiscal year 2019 quarter earnings report, the company and PlayStation group address the effects of the pandemic and its associated lockdowns that affected console manufacturing.

Here’s the official word on the PS5’s progress:

Regarding the launch of PlayStation®5, although factors such as employees working from home and restrictions on international travel have presented some challenges in regards to part of the testing process and the qualification of production lines, development is progressing with the launch of the console scheduled for the 2020 holiday season.

At this point in time, major problems have not arisen in the game software development pipeline for Sony’s own first-party studios or its partners’ studios.

The company also added that while “there has been a slight impact on the production of PS4 hardware due to issues in the component supply chain”, it has been offset by a “significant increased” number of digital game sales.

Things may change if the world’s social and economic situation deteriorates. But for now, let’s chalk this as good news for many, many PlayStation fans out there.
