The rumors behind the next PlayStation Showcase continue to circulate. Retired leaker AccountNgt said in May that there wouldn’t be a major showcase until September. In a recent tweet, News0Videogames said (translation by DeepL) that there would be a PlayStation Showcase on September 8th. It will feature “many first-party games and some big-time comebacks.”
The credibility of the account is up in the air, especially when the bio outright says it’s not always accurate. However, when shared with Xbox Era co-founder Nick Baker, he revealed this to be the same date conveyed to him. His source said they heard that the showcase is “apparently” on September 8th.
They had “three different people tell me September 8th within about 20 minutes of each other. I know dates get changed very last second, but it sounds like they want to go before Disney.” The last bit refers to the Disney and Marvel Games Showcase at D23 Expo 2022 on September 9th, which will provide a sneak peek at Skydance New Media’s upcoming Marvel game.
As for the PlayStation Showcase, time will tell. Baker is also not 100 percent sure if it’s happening on September 8th. But with PlayStation VR2 apparently coming next year and God of War Ragnarok out in November, September seems a good time to showcase them both. Stay tuned for further details in the coming weeks.
Ci sarà un PlayStation showcase a settembre, precisamente l’otto settembre, dove verranno mostrati molti giochi di prime parti e alcuni ritorni in grande stile. Preparatevi, è solo l’inizio.#playstationshowcase #ps5
