Sony confirmed this week that it will continue making its previous-generation PlayStation 4 console through the end of 2022 to make up for limited PlayStation 5 availability.
“The PlayStation 4 is one of the best-selling consoles ever and there is always crossover between generations,” a Sony statement notes.
Sony originally intended to halt PS4 production by the end of 2021, but supply chain issues have dogged the PS5 since its introduction in November 2020. Now, the consumer electronics giant says it will continue producing PS4 units throughout 2022. It plans to ship an additional one million PS4s this year as a result, but it’s not clear which version(s) of the console it will make.
The PS4 originally shipped in November 2013, and it has sold over 116 million units to date.
