According to the latest leak that originally appeared on 4chan, Sony plan to reveal their next-gen console in February 2020. Leak claims that the details come directly from Sony's marketing email, which also mentions Ghost of Tsushima.

Not a lot has been said about Sony's upcoming next-gen console ever since the company's lead system architect Mark Cerny talked about some of the features that the new console will pack. We know that blazing-fast loading times and cross-platform support are some of the biggest focuses for the devs but unfortunately, we don't have any info on the potential reveal or release date.

However, new details about a reveal date have appeared on 4chan and the leak claims that PlayStation 5 will finally be revealed sometime in February 2020. Of course, take this with a grain of salt as 4chan can often be wrong. 

That being said, many rumours that appeared on the controversial message board were right, which could also be the case for this one.

Anyway, the leak also claims that Sony's internal marketing email, which was leaked, mentions "PlayStation Meeting 2020" which is the place for the reveal of PS5 in its full glory and also new footage of Sucker Punch's action-adventure Ghost of Tsushima, which is, alongside The Last of Us 2, part of Sony's flagship offerings in 2020.

Apparently, Ghost of Tsushima development is going "in a more than a favourable manner" but it has also encountered considerable delays due to greater work on the technical side of the software to favour the PlayStation 5 hardware features.

There are also some details about the next State of Play livestream, which is scheduled for 01 November 2019 according to the leak. This one will be slightly longer than the previous episode and it will include Death Stranding launch trailer, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and The Last of Us 2.

The leaker claims that this bit of information comes directly from a former senior marketing manager who has worked in the studios of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
