Sony’s First PS5 Game Reveal Could Be Next Week

We know that the PlayStation 5 release is just months away, but we still have little footage of the next-gen console to cling to. However, new reports are suggesting that come mid next week, all will be revealed. VentureBeat is reporting that Sony has planned a PS5 event for June 3, citing sources “familiar with the company’s plans”. Media organisation Bloomberg is separately corroborating that date.

The June 3 PS5 event promises to be Sony’s most in-depth look at the next-gen console so far, but don’t get your hopes up. Sony has been decidedly secretive when it comes to the PS5, and with reports suggesting further events are in the works, it would be unlikely for the company to engage in a fully-fledged reveal.

Pricing, for instance, remains a critical unknown at this point. With COVID-19 complications still impacting distribution and production, it would be remiss for the company to comment on pricing or specifics for the release. That hasn’t stopped speculation, however, with fans cautiously optimistic the June 3 event will mark the first look at the hotly-anticipated PS5 console.

Where fans may gain some new insights is in gameplay. The June 3 PS5 event could mark the reveal of upcoming titles and possibly a string of cinematics and trailers, however, at this point, it’s all speculation. What we do know is that Sony is planning a series of follow-up events, including a State of Splay that focuses on both next- and current-gen games. VentureBeat is suggesting the State of Play PS5 event has a tentative schedule of August, but again, this is heavily reliant on a number of external factors.

While the June 3 PS5 event is still up in the air, we’re expecting big things from Sony. With Microsoft facing enormous backlash from its gameplay event earlier in the year, you have to hope PlayStation has taken note.
