PS5, Xbox Series X Power 'Substantially Greater' Than Existing Consoles, EA Says

EA has shared its thoughts on the next-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and the company said that what it’s capable of on those platforms will “blow people’s minds.” During an investor call for EA’s Fiscal 2020 Q3, EA’s leadership team was asked about their plans for next-gen consoles. While EA declined to share any specific details like game titles or announcements, EA appears bullish on the generational leap that will come with the next wave of hardware.

Things we’re doing will blow people’s minds.” Jorgensen also said there’s going to be so much “innovation” not just from EA but from the whole industry. Not only with more sophisticated games but even the creation of new genres. While EA declined to share what kinds of games or experiences it’s developing for next-gen consoles, the quote seems to indicate that the technology leap between current-gen consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to next-gen is greater than previously anticipated. There are already some rumors about what kind of tech will be in the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but neither Sony nor Microsoft have confirmed specs. During a recent GDC survey, over 10 percent of developers said that their next projects are slated for next-gen consoles.
