New industry rumors suggest that Sony could be planning a PlayStation Showcase event for June.
For anyone fan or a member of the gaming industry, it is no news that June is always a busy time. The presence of E3 in June has been a guarantee of showcases and big game announcements.
This year after almost three decades of E3, things have changed. Some weeks ago, the ESA officially announced that E3 2022 was officially canceled.
This left many questions in the air. After this cancellation, it was up in the air if publishers and developers were still hosting press conferences in June.
In all fairness, the event was already declining in the past few years. Due to this, some industry giants were no longer participating.
Nevertheless, developers and publishers still hosted independent streams to showcase their games. As for Sony, rumors indicate the Japanese company will continue this June tradition with a PlayStation Showcase.
New Rumors Indicate Sony Could Host a Playstation Showcase in June 2022
According to an industry insider, Jeff Grubb, rumors are already circulating about Sony planning a PlayStation Showcase event for the first week of June.
As with every rumor industry, you should take this one with a grain of salt. Grubb himself stated that this is a rumor he can not confirm personally.
However, the gaming industry’s current state suggests that Sony might want to jump into the tradition of June announcements.
Recently, Microsoft confirmed an Xbox and Bethesda Showcase scheduled for June 2022. Additionally, events like the Summer Game Fest are still taking place in June.
Even though the E3 moniker is out of the picture this year, there is still plenty of hype around the usual June announcements.
In addition to the ongoing hype, Sony has invested in its studios and could have some surprises for its fans ready for June. Earlier this year, Sony acquired Bungie for $3.6 billion.
In the past few weeks, rumors also hinted Sony could be planning a PS5 Pro for 2023 with increased ray-tracing performance.
