The latest PlayStation Showcase has been announced by Sony just one week before it airs on both YouTube and Twitch. In their Tweet, they invited fans to join in and watch the show live next Wednesday, May 24 at 1pm Pacific Time / 9pm British Time. While the Showcase will mainly focus on new and previously announced PS5 titles, a fair amount of time will also be dedicated to upcoming PSVR2 games. And at over an hour long, there should be plenty for players to sink their teeth into.
From the official PlayStation Blog: “The show will run a bit over an hour, focusing on PS5 and PS VR2 games in development from top studios from around the world. Expect a glimpse at several new creations from PlayStation Studios, as well as spellbinding games from our third-party partners and indie creators.”
See you soon!

As with PlayStation’s recent State of Plays, fans can expect to see a series of new announcements in quick succession, with little filler, and one or two longer segments going into a deeper dive on the more anticipated titles. What those titles may eventually end up being is anyone’s guess, but with a recent prequel comic released for Free Comic Book Day and a vague release date of “Fall 2023” looming, hype has begun building for Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. And as fans have heard little to nothing since its official reveal trailer nearly two years ago, Sony would be remiss not to show something.
Other first-party reveals may include some of PlayStation’s in-the-works live-service titles, such as the long-awaited Last of Us multiplayer game. Naughty Dog has been cagey regarding details of the project, only releasing a handful of concept art pieces and promising more “soon”. As it has been three years since The Last of Us Part 2 was released, now would certainly seem like a perfect time to reveal something new.
The last State of Play focused entirely on the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI, but as its release date is drawing ever closer, it would make sense to at least mention it next week. As for what else may be revealed? Only time will tell.
