PlayStation Showcase 2023 Coming May 24 With PS5 Reveals
Sony officially announces that a PlayStation Showcase event is coming very soon.
A PlayStation Showcase event will take place on May 24, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced. The event will take place that Wednesday at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.
"The show will run a bit over an hour, focusing on PS5 and PS VR2 games in development from top studios from around the world. Expect a glimpse at several new creations from PlayStation Studios, as well as spellbinding games from our third-party partners and indie creators," PlayStation said.
That's all PlayStation had to say about the upcoming PlayStation Showcase. In terms of upcoming titles that could be on display, Sony could show Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Naughty Dog's Last of Us multiplayer game, and any number of other titles. There could be unexpected announcements and additional surprises as well.
This has been rumor for months. Reporter Jeff Grubb of GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb reported in February that a big PlayStation event would happen before June. At the time, the report said this event would happen in the lead-up to E3 2023. That show is now canceled, but summertime gaming events are going ahead regardless.
Other big-time gaming events this summer include Summer Games Fest, the Xbox Games Showcase, and the Starfield Direct in June. Ubisoft Forward is also taking place in June, while Gamescom Opening Night Live is taking place in August. Check out GameSpot's Not-E3 Schedule to learn more.
The PlayStation brand is soaring at the moment. PS5 sales have climbed to more than 38 million through March 31. The 6.3 million units sold during the January-March period represents the most consoles that any company has ever shipped in a January-March quarter, beating all figures from past PlayStation consoles, as well as Xbox and Nintendo.
