PS5 official website goes live. Is the reveal imminent?

The last few weeks have felt like an eternity for PlayStation fans awaiting news on the PS5. The anniversary of the now-famous PlayStation Meeting, the event that revealed the PS4, came and went without incident. With the console arriving in stores at the end of the year, fans were getting understandably restless. And then, this morning, a ripple: the official PS5 website went live.

The website actually offers no new details about the console, with PlayStation stating that they are “not quite ready” to share specifics. They do however offer the ability to sign up to a mailing list to keep abreast of any new information.

“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation,” reads the site’s blurb. “Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games.”

So, sit tight. Pricing, release dates, regional availability, launch titles and even what the console itself looks like are all still to come.

Though the site makes the promise of more information to come, we know that it won’t be at E3 2020. Sony confirmed last month that they will once again be skipping the show.

Here’s what we do know about the system so far:

1) It has a logo. You can see it above.

2) Gearbox Software have confirmed that they are working on a launch title called Godfall.

3) Third party publishers like EA and Ubisoft have spoken about their intention to release games for the system, but have had nothing specific to talk about.

For now, the wait for the full reveal continues. We’ll keep you posted.
