PlayStation Showcase Reportedly Scheduled for Late May

The next “big” PlayStation Showcase has been the subject of rumours and reports online for the past few weeks now, with most sources claiming that it’s set to take place either in late May or early June. GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb was the first to break the news about the show and he’s now pinned it on his gaming events calendar for late May – specifically taking place on the week of 25 May.

Video Games Chronicle‘s Andy Robinson recently corroborated Grubb’s report about the PlayStation Showcase set to take place soon, though Robinson’s sources gave him a window of late May/early June. However, Grubb took to Twitter to list the showcase as happening on the week of 25 May, stating, “That timing on PlayStation Showcase is right as of now.” Grubb seems pretty confident in that window but we still recommend taking everything with a pinch of salt.

That said, a major PlayStation Showcase is long overdue. Since the pandemic in 2020, Sony has hosted at least one big digital showcase per year but skipped out on hosting one in 2022 for unknown reasons. We’re finally closing in on the mid-generation of the PS5 so now is the time for PlayStation to go all in on what its numerous first-party studios have quietly been working on for the past few years.

This includes Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 which is currently scheduled to launch in fall 2023, according to the publisher. Alongside the superhero game which is likely to be PlayStation’s biggest release of the year, the company still has other exclusive projects in the works like Marvel’s Wolverine, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (which will be exclusive to the platform once again) and Naughty Dog’s standalone factions for The Last of Us.

Beyond that, we still know very little about PlayStation’s roadmap for the remainder of the PS5’s life cycle. Reports came out earlier this month suggesting that the company was moving ahead with a PS5 Pro. We wouldn’t put money on it being shown at this showcase but we’re also open to surprises.
