Sony will finally reveal PlayStation 5 games on Thursday, June 4th.
The titles will feature in a presentation of just over an hour at 1pm Pacific Time, 4pm Eastern Time and 9pm UK time.
PlayStation says that the digital event will be the first in a series of updates, and that there will be more to share beyond next week's presentation. The Future of Gaming showcase will be streamed via Twitch and YouTube.
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz today, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan spoke about the challenge he set his team to develop digital presentations that can generate the sort-of excitement you would expect from an E3 press conference.
"Obviously the shows, whether it's GDC, PAX, E3, Gamecom... they've all gone," he said. "We have to live in a world where that particular oxygen isn't available to the industry. It's not available to PlayStation or anybody else. We just have to come up with ways to communicate what we're doing, and try and engender the same level of adrenaline, excitement, buzz that we get with thousands of people in an auditorium in Los Angeles. And do that somehow remotely."
Research director of Ampere Analysis, Piers Harding-Rolls, says the June 4th presentation will be crucial in maintaining and building momentum for the next generation. But he isn't expecting to hear news about the console price just yet.
"I'm expecting Thursday's PlayStation 5 event to be a strong showing for Sony, and to build on the recent momentum of interest already delivered by the PS5 DualSense controller reveal, the PS5 logo reveal and the Unreal Engine 5 playable demo," he told us.
