We now know when Sony will hold its E3 press conference, and what we will see in it.
On the latest PlayStation Blogcast, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden announced that Sony will be having its E3 press conference on June 11 at 6 p.m. PT. The conference will be streamed on services such as Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.
Layden also stated that Sony will be focusing on four major titles: Death Stranding, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us Part II. Below is a transcript of what Layden said in the blogcast.
“E3 this year will feature exclusive looks and deep dives on four upcoming titles — four of our big titles… And just as a reminder, those titles are gong to be Death Stranding from Kojima Productions. We’ve got a completely new report from everybody around what’s happening with that title.
“A year ago we introduced the new Sucker Punch title, Ghost of Tsushima, so we’re going to go a deep dive on where the team is at on that — it’s going to be fabulous.
“Of course, there’s our partnership with Insomniac Games and their title Marvel’s Spider-Man. You’ll have seen some of that coverage recently, but we’re going to have a new drop for everybody at E3, at the media event, and you’ll be blown away, it’s going to be awesome.
“The fab four of the event that we are going to be having is of course the sequel to The Last of Us from Naughty Dog. We’ll have a full new scope of treatment on that to show you the progress of the game and give people a better understanding of where we’re going with Part II. We’re really excited about it, it’s going to be a strong centerpiece to all of those four titles we were just talking about.”
Layden was then asked if that was all that we were going to see at Sony’s press conference, to which he said, “No, there will be others.
“We’ll have some announcements with our third-party publishing partners, we’ll have some news things to talk about there, as well as our continued support for independent development. We’ll throw some highlight of that,” he said.
Unfortunately, for those who are hoping for a new hardware announcement, Layden did state that we will not be seeing any new systems at Sony’s E3 conference.
