If you thought that Sony’s E3 press conference was a little lacking – as lamented by Chris here – then you’ll be happy to know it was with good reason.
According to Sony chief Shuhei Yoshida, the platform holder deliberately held back on some of its first-party games that have yet to be announced. Speaking in an interview with Jagat Review, Yoshida stated that there would be more announcements to come later on in the year, though he didn’t specify when.
Could we possibly see a few new names at this year’s PlayStation Experience? We thought it would be likely before, but now it seems an almost certainty. Would these new announcements have added anything to Sony’s E3 presser? Maybe. We’ll never know. What we do know is that some of Sony’s first-party studios have been very quiet as of late, notably Media Molecule and Sucker Punch, that latter of which is rumoured to be working on a PSVR game.
This year’s PlayStation Experience event will be taking place between December 9th-10th at the usual meeting spot, the Anaheim Convention Center.
