When will the next generation of consoles be introduced?
Big companies continue to make predictions about next-generation consoles. Now the game retailer Game Stop, which has an active role in North America, made a statement about PlayStation 5 and when the new Xbox will be introduced. Rob Lloyd, the company's CFO, has put forward the claim that a new generation of consoles will be introduced very recently. Talking about Microsoft, Lloyd believes the company will introduce one or more consoles at this E3. Sony, who didn't attend the E3 this year, will probably be organizing its event and introducing its console.
The next generation of consoles, which are expected to be released in 2020 or 2021, will go to the next level in terms of hardware. The consoles that will bring the 1080p 60 FPS standard to games will also make 4K resolution widespread. What companies we believe will take big steps on the VR side.
On the other hand, it is not clear whether the game makers will support the new hardware technology. While we don't see many innovative games in the first step, the game developers will start to use the full power of the hardware as the generation progresses.
