The road to the PlayStation 5 begins not with a teaser trailer, a live stream, or a stage presentation. Instead, Sony decided to share the first details about its next-generation console in an interview with Wired. The publication recently sat down with lead systems architect Mark Cerny, who served in the same role for the development of the PlayStation 4, to discuss plans for its unnamed successor, which some reports have pegged for a 2020 launch.
Right up front, Cerny confirmed that the PS5 (or whatever it ends up being called) won't launch in 2019. Considering the fact that Sony is skipping E3 2019, this shouldn't come as much of a surprise. But he also revealed that devkits of the new console have already been put in the hands of game developers.
