Sony is to launch the PlayStation 5 in mainland China during Q2 2021.
The news was shared by Sony Interactive Entertainment Shanghai in a New Year greetings video from president Tatsuo Eguchi and vice-chairman Soeda Takehito, as reported by Niko Partners' senior analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter.
Ahmad added that the PS5 was originally given the greenlight to market in December, and is currently going through the last stages of the process, including "the relevant approval of software."
He added that Sony's official mainland China version of the console will likely have an "online services region lock at launch."
