  • An analyst believes that several major gaming announcements will come around E3 2020, even though the trade event has been canceled over coronavirus concerns.
  • Sony is rumored to hold its main PS5 reveal event in May, where it could unveil the PlayStation 5 design.
  • Microsoft supposedly also has plans for new Xbox Series X announcements in the coming months.

The PlayStation 5 is supposed to be released this fall and there are no plans to delay the console, according to a report from a few days ago.

Whatever will happen with the PS5 launch, it’s clear that the COVID-19 crisis destroyed Sony’s marketing plans for the new console. The PS5 was one of the most hotly anticipated unannounced products in February, but the coronavirus outbreak may have prompted Sony to cancel its press event. Sony pulled out of various trade shows because of the growing health concerns, after already having announced earlier this year that it wouldn’t be present at E3 2019. Sony confirmed the move well before the world started worrying about the new virus, as the Japanese giant never planned to attend the show.

Microsoft has been the big winner of this phase of the battle between the two consoles. The company unveiled the design of the Xbox Series X in mid-December at a gaming event and then announced the full specs of the console between February and March, developing quite a lead on Sony. We did see Sony unveil the PS5 specs as well a few weeks ago in one of the most boring events ever to have been streamed on YouTube. And then, the company unveiled the new DualSense controller for the new console. The PS5 design is still missing in action, but it looks like it could be revealed as soon as next month.
