Many are understandably curious as to what the future might hold for consoles. Could companies be looking to launch brand new consoles, or could it be like the analysts predict and that we might see incremental upgrades with every refresh? That definitely remains to be seen, but as far as one analyst is concerned, 2020 could be the year we see next-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles.
According to a report from Gamingbolt, they managed to talk with Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter where according to his predictions, “You know, I think Microsoft could try isolated launches, but the Xbox One X pretty much process they’re not going to do that. It launched far too recently, so I don’t see a new Xbox launching in 2019, I don’t think so. And the thing is, both companies are pretty much aware of what the other guy is doing, so they’ll know if someone is working on a new console, and it’s coming. I think both the next Xbox and PS5 are 2020.”
