PS5 Launching Before 2020 Has Very Low Probability, Says Michael Pachter

Pachter reiterates that the PS5 will ideally launch in 2020.

Wedbush Securities industry analyst Michael Pachter believes the PS5 is still a ways off from launch yet- which isn’t exactly a controversial opinion, to be fair. Pachter was recently asked in an interview with WCCFTech if there was any chance the system could be out this year itself, to which the analyst said there was no chance that that would happen. He says that there is a ”very low probability” of that happening.

Pachter says that while there is a 25 per cent chance that the PS5 might launch in 2019, in all likelihood the system will actually be launching in 2020. That definitely makes a lot of sense. The PS4 is only five years old at this point, while 2016’s PS4 Pro launch makes it even fresher, and the fact that Sony still has a number of big exclusive releases such as Days Gone, The Last of Us Part 2, and Death Stranding planned for the next year or two makes the chances of the PS5 launching anytime soon even slimmer.

Personally, I think even a 2020 launch for the PS5 sounds a bit premature. Sony have historically been known for supporting their systems for much longer than is usually expected, and I think it might be even longer – perhaps until 2021 or 2022 – before we get to see the PS5’s release. We do know what features we want it to implement, though- you can read all about that here.
