The approach Sony has taken towards revealing details about the PlayStation 5 has been odd, to say the least. All we’ve gotten so far from Sony themselves are random article drops about the PlayStation 5. A lackluster deep dive presentation from Lead System Architect for the PS5, Mark Cerny. And lastly, a random reveal of the new PS5 Controller called the DualSense.
Everyone was wondering when we’d get more info about anything PlayStation 5 and we’ve finally gotten the answer. Earlier today, all across their Social Media accounts, PlayStation announced a digital presentation called “a look at the future of gaming on PlayStation 5”. The presentation is set for next Thursday, June 4th at 1pm PDT / 4pm EST / 9pm BST / 10pm CEST on YouTube and Twitch.
Now one thing that is evident from this announcement is that this presentation may be exclusive to showing Video Games for the PlayStation 5. Here is a tidbit of the statement that Jim Ryan put out on the PlayStation Blog that would allude to this.
Sony Interactive CEO, Jim RyanWe’ve shared technical specifications and shown you the new DualSense wireless controller. But what is a launch without games?
That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday. The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.
It wouldn’t be shocking to see any new hardware reveal like the console itself, but whether or not we should expect it is a toss-up.
There are so many games that could be revealed at this presentation from a new God of War from Sony Santa Monica to Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games. One game that I feel is almost a guarantee to be shown at this presentation is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn from Guerrilla Games.
There are tons of games that will potentially be shown, some that have been rumored for some time and some we’ve never even heard about before. One thing is for sure if I talk about it more, we’ll be here a while. So tune in on June 4th to see all the new games PlayStation is set to offer on the PS5.
PlayStation 5 is set for release in 2020.
