While the world waits for PlayStation’s proper PS5 reveal event, the company has launched PlayStation 5’s official website, asking fans to sign up for a newsletter while PlayStation is “not quite ready” to fully unveil its next-gen console.
The PS5 website offers no new information about the upcoming console, referencing everything we already know about PS5’s announced features. Specifically, the website explains that Sony’s reveal of PlayStation 5’s release date, price, and launch games is on the way:
“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation. Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games.”

While the website promises information to come, we know it won’t be at E3, as PlayStation has announced its absence from E3 2020.
In regard to those “incredible features” PlayStation touts, we know PS5 will support backward compatibility and PSVR, 8K resolution, and much more. However, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has said the “bigger differences” of Sony’s next-gen console haven’t been revealed.
What Sony has officially revealed of the PS5 is its logo, while third parties like Gearbox Publishing have confirmed Godfall for Sony’s next-gen system. While we haven’t heard about specific first-party titles yet, other companies like Ubisoft and EA have spoken about games planned broadly for next-gen consoles like PS5.
