Although PlayStation usually hosts conferences surrounding upcoming first and third-party releases in the form of their State of Play streams, the upcoming event will be the first PlayStation Showcase the gaming giant has done in two years.
Although details as to what is going to appear at the event are sparse, by taking a look at the 2021 showcase line-up that included reveals like God of War: Ragnarök, Marvels: Spider-Man 2 and The Wolverine Game, Sony could be ready to come out swinging with some of their hard-hitting first-party titles.
PlayStation Showcase – What Can We Expect to See?
The real question for fans and industry professionals alike is: What Can we Expect to See? Most likely the conference will show off more details about Marvel’s: Spider-Man 2 that is due to release in Fall of this year and if we are lucky developer Insomniac’s other game Marvel’s: Wolverine will finally get a long awaited gameplay trailer. The PlayStation Showcase could also see iconic studio Naughty dog reveal more about the upcoming Last of Us multiplayer game that was teased alongside 10th anniversary celebrations earlier this year.
