Microsoft and Sony have been hyping up the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 respectively over the past few months. However, with the cancellation of E3 2020 (which won’t even have an online event), it’s possible that a number of reveals could take place sooner. This includes reveals for both next-gen consoles.

First, Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad noted that, “With E3 cancelled, a lot of the planned reveals / announcements have been moved out of that single week. Some are now much earlier, others much later. Some still during E3 week of course. The first proper next gen console/games showcase is much earlier too.”

There is a caveat to that last part though, as Ahmad noted that “We are living through an unprecedented situation and this is the one time where external factors such as COVID-19 could actually change plans right at the last minute. But we’ll see.” This isn’t to say that certain reveals couldn’t happen in June during, say the “Summer of Gaming” digital event that IGN will be holding.

But where does the “May” reveal window come in? This is by way of sources that spoke to VGC and noted that a PlayStation 5 reveal would be happening next month. Microsoft also has some reveals planned for May including a showcase for its E3 2020 announcements. A previous rumor did state that Microsoft had two digital events planned for its console, one taking place in May and the other in June, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

For the time being, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are both slated to release this holiday season.
