PlayStation 5 Logo Revealed at Sony CES 2020

Sony has revealed new official logo for upcoming PlayStation 5 gaming console at press event of CES 2020.

In April 2019, Sony Interactive Entertainment lead system architect Mark Cerny came out revealing some major PlayStation 5 details and CEO Jim Ryan later announced a possible release window that is set for holiday 2020.

It seemed a lot like Sony is still trying to keep final design of their next-generation console a secret for a little longer but has unveiled official logo for PS5 console, which didn't look like anything unexpected though.

Showed off earlier in Sony's CES 2020 press conference, new logo for PS5 follows their same slick style that they are using since PlayStation 2. They clearly are not showing intention of slowing down in console war anytime soon.

When PlayStation 5 finally arrives this year, it is said to have backwards compatibility to even play games from original PlayStation platform. However, there is no official affirmation of that claim yet as well as a live display of demonstration.

Even though Sony is holding onto a grand unveiling of their upcoming console, many developers are already working with it. Several leaked image showed how PS5 dev kits look like in past few months with anticipation for some exclusive titles.

Despite many developers are constantly leaning towards working on their next game for newest consoles, it simply won't make PlayStation 4 outdated soon as a bunch of AAA-titles for the platform are going to see release in 2020.

With PS4 selling over 100 million units till date and having nearly same number of active players for each month, Sony has filed trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10, believing to dominate at least five more console generations.

Sony would likely to drop more information on PlayStation 5 features and launch titles as we march ahead in 2020. Currently, they expect PS5 to have a six to seven years lifecycle and is considering adding a PS5-Pro upgrade at some point.

Elden Ring Release Window Leaked

From Software official website has seemingly leaked a release window for anticipated action RPG game Elden Ring.

Starting back in 2009 with action role-playing game Demon's Souls, Japanese studio From Software has been on a winning streak and even won over "Game of the Year" accolade for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at The Game Awards 2019.

Following an official announcement back in E3 2019, fans of their previous work is patiently waiting for new update on their upcoming ARPG release Elden Ring and it seems that we are only months away from its release on 2020.

On beginning of this year, From Software published a New Year card on their official website, which stated that their latest project will come around in June 2020, which could either be a mistake or an estimated release window.

Although this suggested time period is less likely to be an opening for launch, it actually supports a previously leaked release date from retail chain Target, which claimed for the game to have a release month set for June this year.

RELATED: Elden Ring Announced

That leak from back in September 2019 had a product listing of Elden Ring for pre-order and a set date of Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Considering major video games usually release on Tuesdays or Fridays, this date was somewhat plausible.

According to rumors, there is a chance for Microsoft to showcase the game alongside Xbox Series X in an event at that time to showcase power of their next-generation hardware even though it will arrive for current console generation.

RELATED: Elden Ring Will Be Showcased at Taipei Game Show

Players have yet to see some gameplay footage with more details on the game and therefore, a June release date seems to be very early. Depending on how far they are in development phase, it is up to From Software to confirm an official date.

Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is returning once again, teaming up with Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin and it seems that Elden Ring gameplay and story settings will be heavily influenced by "Soulsborne" genre in overall.

God of War Director Hints at Sequel Plot

Game director Cory Barlog recently shares his plans on where God of War story may head over to up next.

A return to mainline series with a reinvention of its lore, 2018 series reboot for God of War from developer Santa Monica Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has earned it universal acclaim for its gameplay and gripping narrative.

A sequel to God of War III, the game has moved away from its Greek legends and embraced Norse mythology. In a recent interview with PlayStation Access, game director Cory Barlog reveals a planned vision for the future of GoW series.

God of War Director Hints at Sequel Plot

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR GOD OF WAR (2018).

Barlog talked about his journey of fitting Kratos into realm of Midgard, sources of inspiration for development process, suggesting where a sequel could be headed and answered many other questions on a number of topics for almost an hour.

Regarding future direction of the series, he reflects on some plot details of new God of War. When asked about what story part he would like to revisit, Barlog expressed keen interest in learning more of Faye, Atreus' mother and Kratos' wife.

GoW 4 begins with death of Faye, which sent her beloved husband and son on a journey across realms to fulfill her last wish. Of course, there is a lot more than what she appears to be and has been responsible for a lot of things around her.

Santa Monica has taken her funeral event as just a starting point for their 2018 PlayStation 4-exclusive title. He is very curious to see how first meet of Faye and Kratos would turn out, leading to a new relationship and a new family.

RELATED: God of War Becomes Fastest-Selling PS4 Exclusive Ever

The acclaimed developer then elaborated on how he could relate to Faye more than any other GoW character.

The story of Faye and Kratos meeting, there’s less weight when you don’t know anything that’s coming ahead, right? Meeting her needs to actually feel like something, that you already know the story that we told here, so that there’s a greater weight behind who she is. She’s got a mythology built up.

RELATED: God of War Prequel Comics

When Atreus and Kratos reach Jötunheim to carry out her request of spreading her ashes from highest peak of nine realms, they realize Faye was a giant who stayed back in Midgard and eventually settle down with former Greek God of War.

This made her son Atreus belonging to a descendant of a giant, god and mortal, whom she had originally named Loki. Even the father/son duo was getting attacked by Baldur because he was after Faye and didn't know that she passed away.

Whether or not they are already working on next God of War game for upcoming release of PlayStation 5 on later this year, he is definitely trying to figure out how to bring them together but that story may not told in a direct sequel.

Cory Barlog returned to Santa Monica back in 2013 to direct God of War (2018) that went on to became one of the top selling PS4 games of all-time. At some point, he would love to take Kratos to ancient Egypt for a possible future sequel as well.
