Sony to unveil PlayStation 5 launch video game titles, first look at games at June 4 event
Video game devotees eager for more information on the upcoming PlayStation 5—and the games coming for the next generation console—will soon have more details.
Sony, which has said the PS5 will hit the market this holiday season, is planning a presentation for Thursday, June 4 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT on the PlayStation YouTube and Twitch channels, according to Jim Ryan, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
"I'm excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you'll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday," he said in a blog post Friday. "The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware."
The digital showcase, he says, will last for just more than an hour and "for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together. A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week's showcase, we will still have much to share with you."
Last month, Sony unveiled the PS5's DualSense controller.
Also scheduled to usher in the next generation of video game consoles is Microsoft's Xbox Series X, coming this holiday season, too.
