Earlier this month, Venture Beat’s Jeff Grubb claimed that a PS5 reveal event was on the horizon for June 4. These plans seem to have changed, however.

In a recent tweet, Grubb understands that the previous June 4 PS5 event date is shifting. The good news is that it’s apparently a matter of days, instead of weeks.

It’s unclear if this event will now come ahead of schedule or a few days later. Since they have not clarified, we’ll have to wait and see. While it would be cool to see what’s in store a few days earlier, it’s fair to say that’s probably not going to be the case.

Citing trusted anonymous sources, Jeffrey Grubb claims in a recent Venture Beat article that the “early June timeframe is still the company’s current plan” for the PS5 reveal.

Apparently, “Sony has a couple of events in the works,” of which will presumably reveal the PlayStation 5 console design, games, and much more.

In terms of what to expect for the early June event, Grubb notes “Sony was putting together a roster of next-gen games.” These video games weren’t just first-party either, but this lineup might have changed in tandem with the reschedule.

PlayStation State of Play Planned for August 2020

Last week, Sony hosted a PlayStation State of Play digital-only event to showcase 18 minutes of new gameplay for Ghost of Tsushima. Fortunately, it seems there’s another State of Play on the horizon – and it’s not too far away according to Jeff Grubb!

The next PlayStation State of Play is slated for August 2020, set to reveal an array of current and next-gen video games. While it’s not entirely clear as to what exactly will be revealed, some expect a new installment of Horizon Zero Dawn to make an appearance. That is speculation at best, however.
