The PS5 (opens in new tab) could be releasing on November 20, 2020 for the price of $499 in the United States, according to new information from the same online source who originally leaked the (first) release date for The Last of Us 2 (opens in new tab)

PS5 specs (opens in new tab) – what's inside the next-generation PlayStation console?

While Sony has already confirmed that its upcoming hardware will be launching sometime in Holiday 2020 (opens in new tab), the PlayStation company has stopped short of revealing a specific date, so this latest claim of a November 20 launch certainly lines up with everything we've heard so far. 

While it's interesting to get excited over the latest series of PS5 leaks, this one - unlike the now verified images of the PS5 devkit (opens in new tab) - should be treated with plenty of skepticism. While PSErebus has a history of reporting on Sony's plans, their anonymity and minimal follower count makes it difficult to completely trust this latest rumor.  

In more recent PS5 news, a new patent for the PS5 controller also surfaced online earlier this week, while another leak from last month suggests the console will feature more robust streaming infrastructure (opens in new tab). Meanwhile, new evidence of Horizon Zero Dawn 2 (opens in new tab) has also emerged, with job listings at Guerrilla Games suggesting a sequel to the action RPG (opens in new tab) could be in the works as a PS5 launch game (opens in new tab)

Closer to home, Sony has confirmed its official Black Friday slate of deals (opens in new tab) for the upcoming season of sales, so check out our guide to the best PS4 Black Friday (opens in new tab) offers that are already live and on the way for more info.
