Sony recently revealed that the company will not be hosting a press conference at this year’s Gamescom.
A spokesperson for Sony told IGN that the decision was made due to how close E3 and Gamescom occur. This year’s E3 will occur over June 16-18, while Gamescom will be from September 5-8. The company has opted instead to hold an event with additional announcement at Paris Games Week in October.
“We’re delighted to announce that we will be hosting an international media briefing at Paris Games Week on 27th October,” they said. “With the changes this year of E3 taking place a week later and Gamescom taking place earlier, we feel that both PlayStation and the wider industry would benefit from a major news milestone later in the year, during the most important period for gaming.”
Does this mean big things for E3 and Paris Games Week?
“We are excited about our plans and look forward to sharing some exciting announcements. We will share more information closer to the time.”
What do you think Sony has planned?
