No PlayStation Experience This Year

If you were looking to wrap up 2018 with some sweet announcements from the PlayStation Experience, you can cancel your plane tickets. Sony is not holding the event this year, because there is not enough info to warrant it. Describing it as a “hard decision” on the PlayStation Blogcast, Shawn Layden, Worldwide Studios Chairman, explained,

“Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down in 2019 to games like Dreams and Days Gone, but we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in some location in North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver.”

It’s bittersweet. I like hearing about what is coming next year with a few bombshell announcements or new information. At the same time, I am glad they didn’t waste the time and money to not tell me anything new and only show me the same old trailers. At least he mentions some of the games coming, and I would guess they are hard at work on everything else. Is it odd that he didn’t mention The Last of Us 2 in that statement? That’s got to be coming next year, right? I guess we’ll learn the answer at E3.

It’s not like Sony doesn’t have other opportunities or outlets (PlayStation Blog, if nothing else) to talk about its upcoming games or drop the occasional update. We’ll keep an eye open and an ear to the ground for any new announcements, so check back frequently. We miss you when you’re gone.
