Sony will reveal new information about the PlayStation 5 in a livestream on Wednesday, Sept. 16. Sony’s PlayStation 5 Showcase promises “updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.”
More specifically, in a PlayStation Blog post, the company says it plans to show “games coming to PS5 at launch (and beyond!)” during Wednesday’s livestream. The PlayStation 5 Showcase will stream on PlayStation’s Twitch and YouTube channels at 4 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. PDT on Sept. 16, and will run approximately 40 minutes.
PlayStation fans are hopeful that the event talks about more than just upcoming PS5 games; Sony Interactive Entertainment has not yet revealed the PS5’s launch date or the price for its next-generation hardware, with mere months to go before the console is expected to be released. Sony’s next-gen rival, Microsoft, revealed the release date and price of its next-gen Xbox systems, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, on Wednesday.
Sony held its first major PlayStation 5 event in June, where the company revealed the design of the next-gen PlayStation, as well as some of the games coming to PS5: Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a remake of Demon’s Souls, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Resident Evil Village, and Horizon Forbidden West.
PS5 is expected to launch sometime during holiday 2020.
