Sony are confident that PlayStation 5 release date will not be delayed despite the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. The Japanese Tech giant's confirmation will certainly come as a sigh of relief to many concerned fans.

As you may know, many gaming and tech events have been delayed or completely cancelled this year due to coronavirus pandemic, which is getting worse by each passing day. Fortunately, it looks like coronavirus will not affect the biggest gaming moment of 2020 - the release of next-gen consoles.

Microsoft earlier confirmed that they don't expect delays and even accidentally revealed Thanksgiving 2020 as the release date. Today, Sony also assured PlayStation fans that their next-gen console PlayStation 5 should arrive right on time.

In the new report from Bloomberg , Sony representative officially confirmed that they do not expect the coronavirus epidemic will have an impact on PlayStation 5 release date, which is set for Holiday 2020.

"A Sony spokeswoman said it doesn’t see any notable impact on the launch of its next-generation game console PlayStation 5 planned at the end of this year," it is written in the report.

Of course, things could change in the upcoming months if the coronavirus epidemic continues to spread but at the moment, this is the best answer Sony could give us.

Yes, we got the full specs recently, but many agree that the live stream was a bit underwhelming and would prefer to hear more about exclusives and other exciting features.
