Sony confirms PS5 not launching this week

People waiting for the launch of the PlayStation 5 by Sony might have to wait a little longer than the official glimpse of the gaming controller.

Sony officials in a recent statement clarified that the PS5 would not launch on September 9, as opposed to the rumors found in the 4chan forum.

There had been rumors for the past week that Sony would be giving the first official look at the much-anticipated next-generation PS5 on the said date. The speculations became very believable as it is not an ordinary day for the PlayStation gamers.

September 9 will mark the 25 years of the first PlayStation console since its first sale in the United States. On such an auspicious occasion, PlayStation was supposed to have a grand event, which it still will, but without the release of the PlayStation 5, as reported by GamesRadar.

The forum post claimed that Sony would give the complete UI look, pricing, and specifications of the PS5. Not just that, but the post also said that the launch of several gaming titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer, Horizon II: Forbidden West, Resident Evil, and more.

PlayStation achieves another milestone

According to the post on the official PlayStation forum, Sony clarified that the event would be strictly about the launching of new titles. The event would also showcase the VR (Virtual Reality) store that PlayStation is looking forward to promoting more in the upcoming weeks.

These VR stores would most probably be used for the promotion of the new PS5, as and when it launches.

In the same post, Sony confirmed the titles that would be launched in the Anniversary event; it includes games like Firewall Zero Hour, Tetris Effect, and many more; you can check the full list by clicking here.
