Bold statement … Let’s hope it’s true. Love to see what the PS5 has to offer.
That’s according to games journalist and reliable tipster Jeff Grubb who tweeted that come June 4, we’ll not only see the PS5 console for the first time but also see a whole range of PS5 games in what will be called the “Slate Of PlayStation.” It’s unclear if this is the official name of the event, or a play on Sony’s recent “State of Play” livestreams that have showcased new games.
This means that Sony could easily torpedo Microsoft’s plan to slowly ramp up excitement for the Xbox Series X by revealing a whole range of first-party and PS5 exclusive games. We doubt we’ll see a sequel to 2018’s fantastic God of War, but we’d not be surprised to see a next-gen Metal Gear Solid game get teased and perhaps a new Horizon Zero Dawn game.
We also expect to see some more footage of the Last of Us 2, before it launches a couple of weeks later on June 19. And we’d not be against seeing how games like Cyberpunk 2077 will look like running on the PS5’s hardware.
