It’s already been a few years since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have hit the market, and some gamers might be looking forward to the PS4 and next Xbox. Well, if you are, prepare for a long wait as Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot thinks we’re a “minimum two years” away from seeing it out in the market.
This was mentioned by Guillemot during an investors call, and the CEO of the company that brought us Assasin’s Creed, Rainbow Six Siege and more attribute this to the recently released Xbox One X, and Sony’s PS4 Pro.
As Sony launched PlayStation 4 Pro last year and Microsoft Xbox One X this year, we think we still have a minimum of two years in front of us before something new is coming. But that’s our perception, we don’t have any confidential information on that front.
Given how Guillemot is the CEO of one of the biggest video game publishers in the world, I’d like to think he has some info that’s not fit to print, no? He can’t say he knows stuff or the internet would freak out, and then Sony and Microsoft would be on his case, and so on. Then again, maybe he really doesn’t know anything about the PS5 and next Xbox (NextBox, Xbox Two?).
Would you want to see the PS5 be released in two years or sooner? Or maybe late? What would the ideal timeframe be for you?
