PlayStation quietly confirmed the PS6 and more without us noticing

PlayStation quietly confirmed the PS6 and more without us noticing

Decades of PlayStation awaits

It should come as no surprise that Sony is already planning its next PlayStation console but it seems, the tech giant is planning for several new consoles ahead from now.

The original version of the PlayStation 5 console was released in 2020 and since that time we’ve been blessed with some fantastic first-party titles including the likes of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarök, the Demon’s Souls remake and more.

Then in 2023, Sony released a smaller revised version of the PlayStation 5 and now it seems that the heavily rumoured PS5 Pro could be next. It’s expected that the PlayStation 5 Pro could be released as early as this year and will likely boost an improved resolution and performance as well as other fancy bells and whistles.

But what about after the PlayStation 5 Pro, what’s next from Sony? Of course, the logical step would be the PS6 but Sony is planning way ahead of the PlayStation 6 with trademarks being registered for PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10, as reported by Gematsu (via Piercesword).

It should come as no surprise that Sony is planning as far ahead as the PlayStation 10. After all, how much of a mess would it be if some random person had trademarked PS10 and Sony then had to buy the rights from that person?

So registering the trademarks decades ahead of time protects Sony in the long term when it comes to naming future consoles. That being said, just because Sony has registered these trademarks, doesn't necessarily mean that those names are guaranteed (as likely as it would be).

At least for the more immediate future, when can we expect to see the PlayStation 6? Sony hasn't made an announcement but we may be waiting a few more years at least.
