Sony has announced that a PlayStation Showcase event will stream next week.
The 40-minute event will take place on Thursday, September 9 at 1pm PDT (9pm BST) and will show games planned for holiday 2021 and next year.
“The Showcase will weigh in at around 40 minutes and include updates from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry’s most imaginative developers, for games releasing this holiday and beyond,” an announcement on the PlayStation Blog reads.
“And stick around after the presentation to get more updates from some of the studio teams featured in the Showcase.”
Sony has been regularly hosting State of Play presentations, giving players updates on upcoming games and products.
This is the first time, however, that it has hosted a PlayStation Showcase event since September 2020, when the PS5 price and release date were officially confirmed.
This suggests that next week’s Showcase will have more high profile announcements than those usually made during the State of Play presentations.
What won’t be announced, however, is any information on the PS5 successor to PlayStation VR, as Sony has confirmed that it will not make an appearance during the Showcase.
“One thing to note: PlayStation’s next generation of VR won’t make an appearance this time,” the announcement says. “But there will still be plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small.”
