The PlayStation 5 Pro release date has leaked adding further foundation to previous rumours.
Rumours of the PS5 Pro’s imminent arrival should come as no surprise. After all, Sony has released at least one revised version of a console for each generation, dating back to the PS1.
Back in 2021, rumours began making the rounds that the PS5 Pro would release in 2024 with a price of around £600 to £700. What’s more, in March 2022, additional rumours claimed that the revised console will feature enhanced performance, a greater resolution, improved ray-tracing and more.
New rumours are once more making the rounds and in an exclusive report from Insider Gaming, it seems that the previously speculated 2024 release window now has more validity.
According to an unnamed source of Insider Gaming, the PS5 Pro is now in development and claimed that it will be “just the beginning of new hardware coming to PlayStation users this generation.”
What’s more, there were previous rumours that Sony will release another PS5 with a detachable disc drive. It is believed that this console is not the PS5 Pro, which could mean that Sony is working on two new consoles, as well as the PS6.
In related news, due to an investigation as part of Microsoft’s proposed $68.7 billion takeover of Activision Blizzard, a 2027 release window for the PS6 was suggested.
Documents made public by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) suggest that the PS6 will release at any point from 2027 onwards. However, if the PS6 does in fact release in 2027, it’s likely that an official announcement from Sony is a few years away.
It will be interesting to see how much more powerful the PS5 Pro is compared to its predecessor, and how close to the estimated £600 to £700 price range it will be, given the fact that the PS5 disc version has an RRP.£480.
