Despite of COVID 19 the PlayStation 5 is going to be launched in the year 2020,it has been observed that this decision comes from the competition of xbox series X and pricing but sony could reportedly supply lower PS5 units than PS4.

According to bloomberg's report at the time of launch expected high price will result a low demand which will lead to decrease in production.for this reason the company is going to make 5 to 6 million units by the end of march 2021 where sony made 7.5 million PS4 units.
Sony is coming with a limited supply of PS5 units and also source is saying that
if Microsoft doesn't delay it's  Xbox Series X, Sony will also not going to be delaying it's PS5 launch.
Sony previously said that his pandemic corona virus will not influence the launch of PS5 but only it's high price will effect the production and it will cause a deficiency in the components.
Somehow this epidemic corona virus will still have its sudden impact as it has already obstructed engineers from travelling to china to direct assembly plants and we have already faced a sign of that with the delay of PS4's the last of US2.
The scene of promotion is already being dominated by this pandemic virus it includes the reveal of the Dualsense which the company has already stated in play station blog and sony also could not adjourn the reveal due to threat of leaks.
Until the PS5 supply becomes sufficient the company is planning to involve it's users by using PS4 into the PlayStation network services.
The company is now  cheering up the adoption and driving up PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now membership by considering the price cuts of PS4 models until the launch of PS5 models.
