In addition to the Nintendo Switch, the systems that make up the ninth generation of video game consoles include the PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch. Even though it has only been two years since the debut of both systems, it appears that preparations are already being made for the next generation of gaming consoles. Sony and Microsoft have both revealed a revised release window for their upcoming console iterations, the PlayStation 6 and the next-generation Xbox platform.

There has been no official confirmation from either business that these consoles are even in the planning stages, and the estimated delivery window is only a working hypothesis at this point. On the other hand, this information provides us with a rough estimate of the window of time during which firms intend to launch new consoles.

Microsoft addressed Sony in its statement during the process of submitting paperwork for the Xbox-Activision merger; however, a comment from Sony was not included in the documents.

Microsoft mentioned in their most recent response document (under section 3.80) that they anticipate players to rethink their console ownership when the next generation of consoles comes out. This was in response to a question about whether or not players would consider selling their consoles. This reevaluation of console ownership is anticipated to occur just once every eight years, according to the next portion of the article.

Microsoft also mentions that if Sony were concerned about the Xbox Activision Blizzard merger going forward, they would have six years to come up with a response in time for the next generation of consoles. This was mentioned in reference to the fact that the next generation of consoles will be released in 2020.

Given that both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S were initially released in 2020, it is possible that both companies will launch a new console around the year 2028, based on the dates that have been estimated.

The year 2028 is not currently scheduled to be a release window, and both Microsoft and Sony’s plans for the future have been disrupted as a result of the supply chain shortage brought on by the Covid pandemic.

This estimation of eight years could be pushed back due to the fact that players need more practice with the currently available ninth generation of consoles. It also appears that corporations like Nintendo are exempt from this speculative date’s application.

If, on the other hand, you were considering purchasing a PlayStation 6 or the next Xbox in the distant future, you might want to consider delaying your purchase until 2026 or 2028. Depending on how well the Xbox Activision Blizzard merger goes, that could be the year in which a new console is released.
