Some disappointing news today for PlayStation fans as it was announced that the company would not be participating in E3 this year.
It would seem that this year PlayStation will not be attending E3 because they are focusing on different titles for the Playstation 4 as well as the upcoming release of the Playstation 5. This would make it two years in a row that PlayStation has missed E3.
A Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson has said, “After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020, We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.”
The spokesperson continued on saying:
We will build upon our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe. Our focus is on making sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.Spokesperson at Sony Interactive Entertainment
It appears that while Playstation is missing out on this year’s E3 convention, it will still be a hectic year for PlayStation fans as this year will be the launch of the PS5 as well as many PS4 games this year. Fans can only hope that despite the company missing out on this year’s E3 that they will continue giving quality games, especially exclusives.
The PlayStation 5 is set to release Holiday 2020. A leak has also suggested the release date would be November 20, 2020 but this is not confirmed.
