Sony is warn­ing that the ongo­ing PS5 short­age may con­tin­ue through 2022. This is accord­ing to a Bloomberg report, where Sony man­age­ment informed ana­lysts that demand is far out­pac­ing sup­ply. Even despite the short­ages, the PS5 is sell­ing bet­ter than the PS4.

CFO Hiro­ki Toto­ki claimed to have spo­ken on the mat­ter with ana­lysts dur­ing a meet­ing, say­ing: “I don’t think demand is calm­ing down this year and even if we secure a lot more devices and pro­duce many more units of the PlaySta­tion 5 next year, our sup­ply would­n’t be able to catch up with demand.”

A spokesper­son for Sony declined to make a com­ment when approached by Bloomberg.

Toko­ki went on to say that Sony is try­ing to “ramp up pro­duc­tion as soon as pos­si­ble and make sure there are con­soles on store shelves.”

Nin­ten­do has also recent­ly acknowl­edged that Switch short­ages may con­tin­ue, part­ly due to the demand of semi­con­duc­tors. Microsoft is suf­fer­ing the same prob­lems both com­pa­nies are, and warned that short­ages of Xbox Series X|Ss will con­tin­ue.
