Sony can still enjoy great interest in PS5, but we can be sure that the manufacturer is preparing for the next generation in small steps. One of the corporation’s documents confirms that the company even has a potential release date for the device.
Sony is fighting for access to Call of Duty, and although Microsoft has announced that it does not intend to remove the series from PlayStation consoles and even offered a 10-year contract, the Japanese want much more. Today, the Competition and Markets Authority published another document regarding the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft, in which Sony’s response appears – the company responsible for PlayStation officially referred to the situation and highlighted an important thread.
The situation was brought closer to the valued analyst Piers Harding-Rolls from Ampere Analysis:
Sensitive details have been hidden in the CMA document, but it is easy to deduce specific information – Sony is afraid that if it loses access to Call of Duty in 2027, players will not opt for PlayStation 6 in their next move, but will reach for new Microsoft equipment, which will get access to the Activision series.
The PS5 in 2028 will be eight years old, so if there are no PROs on the way, it makes a lot of sense.
