PlayStation recently confirmed in a statement, that the company will be a no-show at the E3 (one of the world’s biggest shows for games). The concerning matter, however, is that this will be PlayStation’s second year of absence at E3 following their lack of appearance at the 2019 show. Sony has given out a statement that they have decided to not participate in the 2020 edition of the E33 because of a lack of harmony regarding the vision of E3 2020, where Sony feels that the E3 2020 will not be the right place to execute Sony’s plans for PlayStation in 2020. The spokesperson also said that Sony’s strategy will be to focus more on their fans and are currently planning global consumer events.
Sony’s absence for the second year in a row will be noted by the world, with the company planning to release the latest addition to the PlayStation series, the console for the PlayStation 5 by the end of 2020. E3 is generally a hub for gaming companies like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, who strategically unveil and release upcoming devices at the global event.
However, Sony recently quenched fan’s thirst for information by unveiling the brand new PlayStation 5 logo at CES recently. The PlayStation 5 is rumoured to launch before the end of 2020, however other details regarding the looks and the specifications of the console, the games it will support and the cost is all murky and will remain so till Sony decides to launch the new product.
Sony’s absence from the E3 however, does not mean the world will not see any additions to the upcoming gaming world. Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox confirmed through a tweet that Microsoft will be in attendance. The Xbox series X is expected to launch before the end of 2020 just like the PlayStation 5.
Other gaming companies like Square Enix and Ubisoft are expected to make an appearance at the trade show for the gaming industry which is scheduled for June 9 to June 11. These companies may release new PlayStation 4 and 5 titles at the event.
Meanwhile, ESA released a statement and promised gamers that the E3 2020 will be an exciting experience. The show will display new gaming experiences, partners, exhibitor spaces, activations and programming that will excite true gaming enthusiasts in new and veteran attendees.
