Sony has issued a rare denial in response to a recent report from Bloomberg suggesting the company has cut back production of the upcoming PlayStation 5 due to component shortages.
“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false,” the company said in a statement provided to GamesIndustry.biz. “We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production.”
Bloomberg’s report cited “people familiar with the matter” to suggest that the company was lowering its expected worldwide console production from 15 million down to 11 million for the fiscal year ending in March 2021. That’s due to “production yields as low as 50% for its SOC,” according to the report.
