PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett Might Launch In 2020, According To An Analyst

A lot of rumors about the next-generation consoles emerged on the Internet, lately. Even though we know for sure that we will have a PlayStation 5 and a next Xbox, commonly dubbed Xbox Scarlett, we do not know when the system would come out. Now, according to an analyst, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett might launch in 2020, following their announcements which would happen this year, 2019.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett Might Launch In 2020

In line with other reports, to some extent, Mat Piscatella, an NPD analyst, revealed its own predictions on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett release dates on GamingBolt.

“I’m forecasting announcements in 2019 for 2020 launches for both PlayStation 5 and the next Xbox. However, I do think we’ve moved past the traditional generational model. I expect both manufacturers to add features that will further blur these lines,” said NPD analyst Mat Piscatella for the GamingBolt.

Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Sales Would Drop In 2019

As we’re moving closer to the end of the cycle of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both PS4 and Xbox One sales would drop significantly in 2019, as the gamers will get ready for the new consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett, which, according to Mat Piscatella, would roll out in 2020.

“I forecast both PS4 and Xbox One hardware unit sales to decline in the single-digit percentages next year [2019], but more because we’re nearing the latter stages of the cycle, and I don’t anticipate either making drastic moves on price. Both systems have done well in the US, but 2019 will likely be a transition year as we move into 2020,” said Mat Piscatella.

However, all these are just rumors, as we still don’t have anything official from Sony and Microsoft. Nonetheless, Mat Piscatella’s predictions are in line with other reports and information revealed in late-2018, according to which Sony would announce its PlayStation 5 next-gen console in 2019, most likely, in May.
