Until now, Sony's "Holiday 2020" window was the closest thing we had to a PlayStation 5 release date, but it might be arriving much earlier than that. Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan has listed a job that references an October 2020 release for the new console, which is months earlier than expected.

Today, Twitter user Nibel shared a link to a job listing for a role associated with the planning, development, and sales of the "PlayStation 5 scheduled to be released in October 2020." Read below.

Historically, Sony has rolled out its flagship consoles in November. On top of that, the coronavirus pandemic has also caused huge disruptions with the supply-chain. For this reason, it was believed the release date would actually be pushed back.

Though production may not have been affected, it's almost certain that development, distribution, and game availability will have been impacted. Updates to follow.

Since the listing was shared, Sony has released a statement claiming the October date is incorrect and that it “was due to a mistake in the recruitment site, not the content that was written by our company.” But let's wait and see if this is true, or just them trying to cover their tracks.
