Confirmation came through the brand's CEO. But for now, there are still no dates on the table, nor proposals for names for the next generation of Sony consoles.
"At this point, what I can say is that it will be necessary to have a new generation of hardware," said Kenichiro Yoshida, in an interview with the Financial Times (FT), regarding the next Sony console, without advancing when there will be new equipment.
However, the Japanese company already had come to public confirm that it will not debut a next-generation console over the next three years.
Although the vice president of the brand has assumed that Sony wants to "take the next step" in the gaming sector, sources quoted by the FT say that it will not mean a revolution against PS4, maintaining a similar architecture and design.
The announcement comes at a time when rumors have surfaced that Sony could launch a tablet with the ability to connect to streaming platforms and multiple gaming devices.
In this field, the Microsoft has already revealed which in 2019 will begin the first public tests of xCloud, a streaming gaming project that will give players "the freedom to play on the device they want."
