With the PS5 releasing in holiday 2020, we know a PS5 reveal event is going to happen eventually. The question is when, and will we see gameplay for new exclusives?
A new rumor, and more importantly, a comment from Sony’s CEO, seems to indicate that both things are coming “soon.” Let’s see if we can dig up any more details.
PS5 Reveal Coming ‘Soon,’ With a Game Lineup in Tow
VentureBeat’s own Jeff Grubb, posted a story that shows upcoming events around the typical E3 season.
Grubb is known as a connected insider, and has correctly predicted dates for things like Nintendo Directs in the past. Originally, he claimed the PS5 reveal would happen on June 4th, but he now claims that Sony is “moving it around.”
Despite this, he still believes we will see our first glimpse of the PS5 and next-gen games in early June. Specifically, it seems like the focus of the event will be on the games, but I think it’s high time we saw the box.
All of this, while Microsoft recently showcased some next-gen titles with mixed results. Still, they are promising monthly events for the rest of the year, so I hope Sony will open up about what they are planning.
Going Beyond Rumors
Industry insiders aside, Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida had this to say on an earnings call the week of May 22nd:
“We will soon be announcing a strong lineup of PS5 games.”
The word “soon” doesn’t give us much to go on, but it’s better than nothing. Combined with the rumors above, I’m willing to bet we will have some new PS5 news to talk about within the next few weeks.
Stay tuned, and let us know what games you want to see in the PS5 reveal in the comments!
