The PS5 reveal event has been postponed
Sony has announced that they are postponing the PS5 reveal event scheduled for Thursday, June 4, 2020.
This means that there will be no major PlayStation 5 game reveals being hosted this week.
The tech giant confirmed its plan changes in a new update shared with the PlayStation community, telling PS4 gamers:
“We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4.
“While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”
As mentioned above, the delay is only temporary but Sony has not provided a new date for its PS5 reveal event.
The good news is that whenever it does arrive, it should contain everything it was originally billed to contain.
Sony has confirmed that the PS5 reveal stream will last for around an hour and will look at the games coming to the PlayStation 5 after it launches later this year.
In a blog post online, SIE President and CEO Jim Ryan went into more details about what PlayStation fans can expect from the PS5 reveal event.
Ryan wrote: “There are few things as exciting as the launch of a new console. While this road to launch has been a bit…different, we are as thrilled as ever to bring you with us on this journey to redefine the future of videogames.
“We’ve shared technical specifications and shown you the new DualSense wireless controller. But what is a launch without games?
“That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday.
“The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.
“This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together.
“A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before.
“This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”
And while we have no assurance regarding when the PS5 reveal event will be rescheduled for, there is still a good chance it will be happening in the coming weeks.
Sony has confirmed that they are still planning to launch its new PlayStation 5 console during holiday 2020, alongside Microsoft and its Xbox Series X.
