According to insider Nibel's Twitter account, Sony may have released the date of the much-anticipated PS5 in a job advert in Japan.
In the screenshot posted from his Twitter account, Nibel highlights the portion of the job post that announces the release of October 2020, which is about a month ahead of the rumored "Holiday 2020" release on Black Friday.
After the post went live, Famitsu reached out to the Sony Interactive Entertainment PR team to verify the date Sony admitted that the date mentioned was wrong and released in error.
Playstation released a brief statement directly after Rikunavi NEXT foul up to clear the air about the impending release.
"It is not due to our description, but due to a mistake in the adoption site."
Rikunavi NEXT has released an official apology on the website for the misinformation given on the May 1st job posting.
" In the recruitment information of Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc released on May 1, 2020 on this site, there was a description that the release date of PlayStation 5 was "to be released in October 2020", but about this Is an accidental posting of inaccurate information by the company without confirmation by the company.
