Despite the PS4 being in it’s prime at the moment, it seems that Sony could already be preparing for the next generation of consoles. A thread on NeoGAF, started by user bitbydeath, shows a tweet from Twitter user Marcus Sellars stating that dev kits for the PlayStation 5 were released to third party developers earlier this year. Sellars, who’s bio states he is a video game journalist, replied to a tweet that this claim must be a joke with a simple “Nope”.
PS5 dev kits went out early this year to third party developers.

Other users in the Twitter thread added their two cents, stating that this seems about right for the release of a new generation of consoles. They also added that the PS4 would likely still be supported, and people wouldn’t be forced to update. Others said that a PS5 would be pointless as the PS4 Pro offers everything that the standard PS4 does but in 4K, meaning that the jump from PS4 to PS5 would be pointless as (from a technical standpoint) it would be tiny.
It seems we will have to wait for any official word from Sony, if there is any to be had. I personally don’t see the PS5 being a thing just yet. The Pro offers what Sony feels is the most advanced graphics they can offer, but maybe the Xbox One X has forced Sony’s hand and made them up their game. What do you think of this rumour?
