The next PlayStation Showcase livestream is set to kick off on Wednesday, May 24 at 1 pm PT.
The coming month ushers in the commencement of this year’s highly anticipated Summer Game Fest. This event series promises a flurry of riveting livestream showcases—each spotlighting the releases we can eagerly await throughout 2023 and beyond.
In lieu of E3’s unfortunate cancellation this year, Summer Game Fest is primed to fill the void, cranking up the hype for a new wave of AAA releases.
And don’t worry, many top-tier publishers are already on board.
PlayStation Gears Up for Summer Game Fest 2023
PlayStation, one of the confirmed participants of Summer Game Fest 2023, has been at the center of murmurs suggesting an early kick-off to the festivities.
Rumor has it, Sony might just host a new PlayStation Showcase event before June rolls around.
The industry insiders are abuzz with speculation, with predictions pointing towards next week—specifically Wednesday, May 24, or Thursday, May 25.
Interestingly, these predicted dates fall a little over a fortnight ahead of Xbox’s livestream, Sony’s arch-console rival, slated for June 11.
PlayStation Showcase Confirmed: A Kick-off to Remember
Turns out, the early birds were onto something—the next PlayStation Showcase is indeed confirmed for next week. PlayStation recently announced the official commencement of Summer Game Fest 2023 will be on Wednesday, May 24 at 1 PM Pacific Time, 4 PM Eastern, or 9:30 PM British Standard Time.
Like every previous PlayStation Showcase, the event will be broadcasted live on YouTube and Twitch.
A Sneak Peek into the PlayStation Showcase Line-up
The air is thick with anticipation regarding the games and hardware that will grace this upcoming PlayStation Showcase.
The previous PlayStation State of Play livestream in April unveiled Final Fantasy 16, and fans are anticipating one final trailer before its launch on June 22.
However, the real showstopper could be the reveal of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Despite the official announcement during 2021’s PlayStation Showcase, fans have had little more than a prequel comic and minor promotional events to whet their appetite.
PlayStation: Setting the Stage for Summer Game Fest 2023
