PlayStation 5 confirmed by Sony

Speaking during an interview with the Financial Times (via GI.biz), Yoshida-san didn't actually utter the words "PS5", but made it clear the format holder is looking to release a next-generation console.

The PlayStation was succeeded by the PlayStation 2; the PlayStation 2 was succeeded by the PlayStation 3; and the PlayStation 3 was succeeded by the PlayStation 4.

Rumours have varied wildly over the last few years but it now seems inevitable that the console will be out by at least Christmas 2020 and possibly 2019 - with a reveal potentially as early as next spring, if Sony follows previous patterns.
