Rumours and speculation surrounding the next generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft have been ramping up progressively. Reports suggest that a good chunk of developers in the industry are at work on next-gen games already, while on the Sony front, analysts have suggested that the PS5 will be out by the end of next year, which seems like a common assumption among many.

However, as per industry analyst Yasuo Imanaka of Rakuten Securities, it’ll still be a while yet before Sony launches its next console. According to Imanaka in his recently written report (via Twinfinite), its unlikely that the PS5 will be launching before March 2020, but in all likeliness, Sony will be holding the console’s release back even longer than that. He predicts that the PS5 will launch in the financial year 2021-22 (between April 2021 and March 2022, which would imply a late 2021 release).

Not too long ago, IDC analyst Lewis Ward also told us something similar, saying that according to his projections, the PS5 and the next Xbox would both be launching in 2021 at the earliest. Then again, fellow analyst Michael Pachter seems to believe it is unlikely that that will happen.

In related news, recently it was reported that Microsoft will be unveiling the next Xbox at E3 this year, which will followed by a launch for the system in 2020, accompanied by Halo Infinite as a launch title. Read more on that through here.
