According to several industry sources, Sony are said to be planning a proper PS5 reveal sometime in June 2020, with most pointing at the mid-June window.

We first heard the rumour a few days ago, when Venture Beat reported that Sony are set for an event taking place on 4 June 2020. 

This gave way to some other estimates, with the latest one coming from Jason Schreier, formerly of Kotaku and soon to be of Bloomberg.

Speaking in PressStart's podcast (38:50), Schreier suggested a similar timeline, albeit leaning towards the first half of the month instead of giving an exact date. "Sony is still on track to do at least one thing by early June let's say. Or by mid-June, let's say", he said.

He stressed that the entire COVID-19 situation has caused a period of uncertainty where both Sony and Microsoft are forced to change plans and shift things around, sometimes in the last minutes. 

Therefore, it may be wise not to bet your house on Sony holding the PS5 reveal event at the above times, because you may have to buy a house and a PlayStation then. 

That said, where there's smoke, there's fire, and it's clear Sony are cooking something up - it's just a matter of when we get to see it. 

In spite of the few presentations, there are many questions to be answered about PlayStation 5. Moreover, everyone is eagerly anticipating Sony's in-house lineup of games, and all sorts of rumours are making the rounds here, including Horizon Zero Dawn 2.

Microsoft have had their round of reveals, although not everyone is calling it a success. Ubisoft and Microsoft ended up apologising , but that's what happens when you let the hype run away from you.
