The PS5 website has been launched in advance of the anticipated reveal of Sony's PlayStation 5 console.

A submission on the /r/PS5 subreddit highlighted the launch of the website. It's popped up on the Internet in both English and German. The website features the PS5 logo and a short message about what we can look forward to.

 

We've begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5, but we're not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation. Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games.

Understandably, the launch of this new PS5 website has people hyped for some kind of upcoming reveal — and we might not have to wait too long.

When will the PS5 Website Reveal the Console?

A rumored leak from back in August 2019 stated that there was a presentation meeting scheduled for February 12, 2020. That's a little over a week away! Things have been relatively quiet since then, but there are some interesting facts suggesting that we might be hearing something soon.

Notably, it should be mentioned that the PlayStation 4 was also announced in February 2013, adding a measure of credibility to this rumor. The launch of this new website doesn't quite confirm that we'll be getting a reveal next week, but it certainly makes for some interesting timing.

 
 

Lastly (and far from least), a company's fiscal year typically ends in March. Announcing a brand-new console before the end of the Fiscal Year 2019 (which concludes in March 2020) would certainly be a good way to bump up the company stock.

So, does the new PS5 website herald an announcement coming soon? We know it's coming sometime in 2020, but we honestly can't say for sure. For now, you can sign up to get alerted about PlayStation 5 updates on the PS5 website. You might have to wait a bit, though — this new web page is somewhat overloaded right now.
