The PS5 release date continues to be a hot topic, as GTA 5 publisher Take-Two weighs in on the launch.Asked about a potential 2020 PS5 launch, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick told shareholders that the company has handled console transitions in the past.According to DualShockers, the company has managed to create “the highest quality properties that defy proper behavior in console transition periods”.Zelnick used GTA 5 as an example of a game that “remains the standard bearer for a generation”.He praised the team at Rockstar for the “extraordinary” work on the next-gen port.Perhaps we’ll see something similar with the next Grand Theft Auto game, or even a PS5 port of Red Dead Redemption 2.Zelnick said that he couldn’t comment on Sony’s plans, so watch this space for more information.The PS5 release date is the subject of much debate, as conflicting reports emerge of a potential PlayStation 5 launch.The general consensus is that the PS5 will launch in 2020. That’s according to analysts like Michael Pachter, who argues that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox One X 2 are likely to have 2020 release dates.However, another report on SemiAccurate suggests that PlayStation 5 dev kits are already in the hands of developers and that the PS5 could have a shock 2018 release date.Defiance 2050 producer Matt Pettit, on the other hand, believes that the current console generation will last longer than the previous one. This would lead to a 2020/2021 release date.Another recent report suggested that the PS5 might launch sooner rather than later, after sales started to slow for the 2017 holiday period.PS4 shipments were at 9.7 million for holiday 2016, compared to 9 million in 2017.As Ars Technica points out, if PS4 sales have peaked, Sony could start seriously considering the release of the PS5.”More likely, however, the PS4’s shipment peak starts the long countdown to the PlayStation 5,” the post reads. “Which history suggests should restart the cycle of console boom and bust in the next three or four years (that’s assuming that Sony doesn’t keep the current generation limping along with some sort of PS4 SuperPro, of course).”How soon Sony decides to pull the trigger on that hardware refresh depends a lot on how quickly the PS4’s sales pace drops from here on out.”
