In recent times, there has been a couple of speculations regarding the upcoming PlayStation 5. Although, we know that this device will be called “PS5”, there is now an official confirmation. Following the submission to the Swiss Intellectual Property Agency on January 27, the British Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has also approved Sony’s trademark application for “PS5” on January 30. The application is categorized as Class 9, which includes gaming consoles. In the coming days, Sony will undoubtedly apply for the same trademarks in multiple countries to ensure global protection.
At least through this trademark disclosure, we can be more certain that Sony’s next-gen console will be called PS5.

There are also rumors that the announcement may happen on February 15th. It is worth mentioning that the PlayStation Meeting is an event by Sony to show important PlayStation products.
