Yesterday evening, Bloomberg published a report claiming that Sony was reducing its PlayStation 5 output by as many as 4 million units due to production headaches stemming from the next-generation console’s custom-designed SoCs. Now we’re learning that it was a work of fiction.
In a statement provided to GamesIndustry.biz, Sony bluntly noted that the allegations were “false” and that PS5 production is proceeding as planned. We’re seeing some conflicting figures, but based on some of the more optimistic estimates, the Japanese gaming giant could churn out as many as 15 million systems for this fiscal year.
“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false,” Sony said. “We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production.”
This is good news for PlayStation fans who want to get their hands on a next-gen console this holiday, but scoring one may still be an uphill battle. Judging by the impressive view counts on Sony’s advertisements thus far, interest in the PS5 could be higher than anyone might’ve imagined.
