Sony outright denies a recent report by Bloomberg.

According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Sony had cut their manufacturing plans for the PlayStation 5 by a whopping 4 million units. This was allegedly due to "complications making a key component."

Less than a day after that report was made, Sony says that this is, in fact, not factually true. Sony issued a public statement that denies the Bloomberg report.

“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false.

"We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production."
Bloomberg's initial report was based off of "sources familiar with the matter" that spoke to Bloomberg. Their sources claimed that there was an issue with the manufacturing of the PlayStation 5 custom-designed SOC (system on a chip). Production reportedly went as low as 50%, which suggested that Sony had to cut their expected output of PlayStation 5 consoles by 4 million units through the end of the year.

That would have still seen over 11 million PlayStation 5 units being shipped and sold through 2020. With the denial of this rumor, Sony is presumably back to shipping 15 million units by year's end.

We still do not know exactly when the PlayStation 5 will be released or for how much. We will hopefully get some more concrete information on both of these during Wednesday's PlayStation 5 Showcase. This reveal will have come roughly a week after Microsoft announced a November 10 release for the Xbox Series X|S.
