Production of PlayStation 5 Reportedly On Track Despite Coronavirus

Likely, you have been following the news on coronavirus. If so, you probably are aware that it is impacting not just health, but also industry. Many people in China have had to put a pause on important aspects of business (indeed, many shops have shut altogether for the time being). So, you may be wondering what impact the virus is likely to have on production for the PlayStation 5. Will it lead to a delay in the release schedule? Will we be waiting until 2021 to get our hands on the PS5?

Apparently Coronavirus Hasn’t Stalled PlayStation 5 Production

We had actually heard the other week that there could well be a delay in the release of PS5 and the next Xbox. But now, there are some hopeful indications that this may not be the case at all.

Bloomberg recently reported, “The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has had no impact so far on preparations for PlayStation 5 production, they [‘people with knowledge of the matter’] said. The company has yet to decided how many PlayStation 5 units it will make in the first year, they added.”

This is very good to hear. It is hard to know who “people with knowledge of the matter” might be. But as this is a major news outlet, we are guessing that the sources are reputable. So, perhaps we will get the PS5 during the planned holiday release window after all.

Nevertheless, we have no idea how long it will take to get coronavirus under control and what ill effects it could potentially have on this and other industries as the year unfolds. So, we will continue to keep you informed as to the latest developments in our PlayStation news. In the meantime, keep saving up for your next gen console!
