Will the PS5 be region free?

For example, will a European PS5 game disc play on a North American PS5? 

PS4 is region free, and I remember the PS3 was too (but not the PS2). PS2 was region locked, I remember also...

    I don't think they've said anything, either way.

    Until proven or said otherwise, I would believe that PS5 will handle region locking the same as PS3 and PS4.

    The systems aren't region-locked but the PSN accounts are.  So if you want to play an EU game on an NA system you would need to play it on an EU account funded with EU currency if you want to access DLC, etc. that goes with that game.
