Rumor: PlayStation Showcase Happening This Month

Rumors suggest that Sony’s biggest showcase of the year, simply called the PlayStation Showcase, will take place sometime this month.

Although summer is winding down and fall is fast approaching, there is still plenty of time for video game companies to make announcements for the summer season. “Not E3” may be over, but it won’t be long before the industry opens the door for Gamescom, releases its major fall/holiday video games, and moves onto the Game Awards 2022. One company fans have been hoping to hear from, but has largely been quiet, is PS5 brand owner Sony.

There hasn’t been a State of Play since early June 2022, and there are upcoming games that definitely need the spotlight like God of War: Ragnarok. It finally has a release date of November 9, but next-to-nothing in way of gameplay has been shown. Indeed, there’s still plenty of time to show off the game, but the sooner, the better. Rumor has it, though, that the next Sony event isn’t a State of Play, but a PlayStation Showcase.

State of Plays are smaller shows, more comparable to a Nintendo Direct, whereas the PlayStation Showcase is essentially its E3-level presentation. For the past two years, a PlayStation Showcase has been held in September, but according to Xbox Era founder and known insider Nick Baker, it seems the current plan is to host a PlayStation Showcase this month, in August, instead. Given The Last of Us Part 1‘s September 2 release date and the likelihood it would be at the showcase, this does make sense. Unfortunately, that’s all Baker really had to share. He did say that his source told him the current plan is August, but also his source said “not sure if it will be moved.”

The latest it is likely to be moved to is September, though, so it’s not a terrible wait either way. There’s also no guarantee that games like God of War Ragnarok or The Last of Us Part 1 will be there, but they are likely to be. It’s entirely plausible Sony focuses on its releases this fall/holiday before showing off some 2023 games. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, for example, would be nice to see, but it’s hard to say for sure.

For now, fans will just have to wait and see what comes of this rumor. It could be that history wins and the PlayStation Showcase takes place in September, or it could be that this proves true and fans will see some upcoming PS5 games on a big screen very soon. It’s exciting, no matter how long the wait.

God of War Ragnarok releases November 9 for PS4 and PS5.
