But it seems like that may not be the case this time around. PlayStation boss Jim Ryan spoke to Cnet after the PS5 games event announcement and said, “We remain absolutely on track. We’re going to launch this holiday, we will have a global launch. And where we’re greatly looking forward to it. And we very much want the gaming world to look forward to it, too.” Also Read - Sony announces next PS5 event set to take place on June 4
