Are PS4 (PlayStation 4) servers shutting down on November 6

It’s highly unlikely that Sony would abruptly pull the plug on their servers without prior notice. After all, the gaming community is a crucial part of the PS4 experience.

In fact, in October 2022, Sony stated that they would continue developing games for the PS4. And this further dispels the fears of an imminent shutdown.

This move indicates that Sony will remain committed to catering its PS4 user base, ensuring that they can continue enjoying a rich gaming library.

Moreover, Sony has not made any official comments or announcements about the alleged server shutdown.

This silence from the gaming giant adds more weight to the possibility that the November 6 shutdown rumor might be nothing more than a speculation.

So, if you’re a PS4 user, rest assured that your online gaming experiences aren’t at risk at this moment.

Furthermore, gamers who are worried after hearing about this rumor can keep an eye on Sony’s official page to know when the servers or any service is actually shutting down.
