Sony have confirmed their annual PlayStation Experience show which has been held in December for the last few years will not return this year. Sony have previously used the show to make a number of big announcements, ensuring they get all the headlines rather than getting lost amongst the big reveals at E3.
“For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we decided to not hold PlayStation Experience this year,” said Sony’s Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden.
“We won’t have it in the States this year. The reasons behind that really are we don’t have…we have a lot of progress that we’re making on our games…Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone.
“But we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in some location North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on that. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience.”
Sony are entering the phase when some of their new first party games will be for PlayStation 5, and obviously they can’t talk a bout them until the console is announced.
