The PlayStation 5 (officially abbreviated as PS5) is an upcoming home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Announced as the successor to the PlayStation 4 in 2019, it is scheduled to be launched in late 2020.

In a Wired article in April 2019, Sony lead architect Mark Cerny revealed information on the then-unnamed successor to the PlayStation 4. This new console will include a specialized solid state drive, a GPU capable of supporting ray tracing, backwards compatibility with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR titles, and support for both digital and disc-based titles.
