The production of PS5 consoles is set to ramp up soon, but will this end the stock shortages?
You’re probably already aware that it has been near-impossible to buy a PS5 since it launched way back in November. Customers have to wait for retailers to restock the consoles and hope they can click quickly enough to secure theirs.
However, there is finally some good news for PlayStation fans still looking for the new console. It looks like Sony is increasing the production of PS5s very soon.
PS5 Production Increase To End Stock Shortages?
Recent reports claimed that the PS5 stock shortages will continue into 2022. However, a new interview has revealed that this may not be the case.
Sony Interactive Entertainment President & CEO Jim Ryan recently told Wired some new details about the increasing production of PS5s and how this could end the stock shortages.
“We see production ramping up over the summer and certainly into the second half of the year, and we would hope to see some sort of return to normality in terms of the balance between supply and demand during that period.”Jim Ryan
Unfortunately, Ryan gave no numbers on how many PS5 consoles Sony is aiming to make, despite previous claims that Sony would sell 18 million PS5s this year. However, even just the fact that production is stepping up will be encouraging for many gamers who haven’t managed to snag a new PS5 because of the stock shortages.

The PS5 will also be getting “more exclusives than ever before”, according to Ryan. This is great news for PlayStation fans.
A couple of these exclusive games could be the leaked remake of The Last Of Us and Uncharted 5.
