The Sony PS5 news and Xbox Series X updates just keep coming – we're only a few weeks into the year, but already we've seen the console's logo launched, and the tease that more features for the machine will be teased soon.
We already knew the next-gen PS5 would arrive at the end of 2020, with Sony already confirming as much in several interviews and blog posts earlier this year, and late last year we even saw a trusted industry leaker suggest the specific PlayStation 5 release date , too.
Sony has yet to confirm anything, though, and people are still in the dark about when they'll get to play the console.
But this week, some internet sleuths may have identified a likely window the hardware could arrive in.
Over on Resetera, user ItWasMeantToBe19 posted a thread called "Let's talk about the exact timeframe when the PS5 and Xbox Series X will release".
On the forum, the user discussed when Sony and Microsoft would likely put the new consoles on the market, and the findings were interesting.
The poster listed a series of dates of note: Black Friday 2020 (November 27th), the Call of Duty release date (between October 25th and November 4th), the US presidential election (November 3rd) and a Friday the 13th that falls on November 13th this year.
With all these dates in mind, the user posits that 'mid-October' would be the wisest time for Microsoft and Sony to strike with the new console launches.
The writer posits that this window "won't be totally overshadowed by the election, can launch on a Friday that isn't Friday the 13th, [and] can have a Call of Duty game launch with the system instead of the next-gen version being a couple weeks later than the PS4 version".
It's a sensible call, but other posters in the thread seem to think that the consoles will arrive later, with November 13th/20th being the most common reply.
"PlayStation hasn't ever released in October as far as I can remember, just November. But that would be cool" one user writes.
It's all up in the air at the moment – but we're expecting Microsoft and Sony to reveal when the consoles will launch relatively soon – with the absolute latest announcement coming at E3 2020 (which kicks off on June 9th).
We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
