EA Studios executive vice-president Patrick Söderlund had a nice talk with MCV where he explained why he thinks that Xbox Two and PS5 will arrive in 2018-2019.
“This console [360/PS3] cycle may have gone on a little bit longer than I would have wanted.”
Söderlund says that there’s an upside to a longer console cycle, though in his opinion old console games are better. “At the same time, you have seen games like The Last of Us and GTA V at the end of a cycle which perhaps you would not have expected a few years ago.” He feels that manufacturers won’t permit ageing hardware to linger next time round, however. “A five, six-year gap is what I expect going forward.”
