At long last, we may finally get some serious news about the PlayStation 5. Now, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, Sony hasn’t confirmed anything officially. However, a reliable industry insider has some potentially exciting information to share with us.
Industry Insider Talks About Potential PlayStation 5 Reveal
VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb compiled a list of events that companies are planning to make up for the fact that we aren’t going to have E3 this year. When speaking about Sony, he had a lot to write. One of the things he’s most confident about is the idea that Sony has a reveal event for the PlayStation 5. He’s also fairly certain that it’s coming sometime early in June.
“The company was originally planning this for June 4, but is moving it around. The exact date is more nebulous now. That doesn’t mean it’s slipping by a matter of weeks, though. The early June timeframe is still the company’s current plan,” he wrote.
Sony May Have Another Event In August
As far as what we’ll see at this event? Grubb is a little less certain. He does expect that they’ll show off both first-party and third-party games. However, their shifting date may make that difficult. He also isn’t certain whether we’ll actually see the PlayStation 5 console in all its glory.
That being said, Grubb does expect that we’ll have seen the PlayStation 5 properly by the time Sony’s next event rolls around. This second event will be another State Of Play, and it’s going to take place in August.
Sony President Talks About Showcasing PlayStation 5 Games
Some of this information does line up with what we’ve heard from Sony themselves. During a corporate strategy meeting, company President and CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida said the following, according to VGC.
“Games for the PS5 that deliver this new game experience are being made by both first and third-party developers and we plan to introduce a compelling line-up of titles soon.”
June is about as long as players can wait before their frustration reaches a boiling point. We already know a lot about the Xbox Series X, so we’d better start seeing the PlayStation 5 in action soon. Hopefully, this June event pans out.
