A PlayStation Showcase is scheduled for May 24

PlayStation Showcase 2023

Sony is sharing what’s in store for the PS5 and PS VR2

A new PlayStation Showcase has been scheduled, and it’s airing fairly soon. Sony will host its PlayStation Showcase next week on May 24, with some news to share for both the PlayStation 5 and PS VR2.

The stream will go live at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 24. You can follow it via the PlayStation Twitch or YouTube channels.

PlayStation’s show will run for “a bit over an hour,” according to the PlayStation Blog shared today, focused on PlayStation 5 and PS VR2 games. It will have “several new creations” from PlayStation Studios, as well as third-party partners and indie creators.

What’s ahead for PlayStation

While this won’t be PlayStation’s first stream of 2023, this showcase does have a different air about it. The confirmation of first-party PlayStation Studios news is likely enticing, given that Sony’s State of Play streams in 2023 so far have focused more on third-party titles.

It’s certainly an opportunity for something likeĀ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which is expected to arrive this year, to resurface. Several other upcoming games from frequent PlayStation partners could be possible, too. I know I’d be interested in some more details on something likeĀ Death Stranding 2.

It also runs just a little bit ahead of June, where the summer of gaming news has slowly but surely congregated. Even without an E3 to bind them all together, streams from companies like Xbox and Ubisoft are still taking place, as well as Summer Game Fest and its kickoff stream.

PlayStation’s getting a little ahead of that curve with a May 24 show. We’ll see what Sony has in store for its first-party production at the PlayStation Showcase on May 24.
