This afternoon will see Sony Computer Entertainment take to the airwaves for its May 2023 PlayStation Showcase stream. Kicking off in about 30 minutes from now, PlayStation fans can expect news and updates on a jackload of releases, currently in development for PS4, PS5, and/or PSVR 2 platforms.

While we don’t quite know exactly what will be shown on this afternoon’s stream, it seems very likely that Insomniac will have some new footage, (and probably a launch date), for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which is one of the few PlayStation exclusives still planned for 2023. It’s likely that Square Enix will also drop in for some Final Fantasy XVI updates, ahead of the RPGs late-June launch.

In regards to third-party titles, it’s getting a little late for Street Fighter 6 updates, but perhaps we’ll see another trailer or gameplay footage for NetherRealm Studios’ recently announced Mortal Kombat 1. There are also some Hail Mary possibilities, such as Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding 2, and an update on Marvel’s Wolverine — But one would obviously expect Insomniac to focus on its current Marvel Comics game before it starts talking about the next one.

Whatever The Blue Brand has to show us, we hope that you’ll grab a drink and settle in with us. Feel free to leap into the comments with your thoughts, reactions, and opinions to the news as it rolls out in front of us. Given another time-out from E3, these streams remain the best way for us to enjoy the summer of gaming (as opposed to The Summer of Gaming) together. So… let’s tune in to the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase stream and see what releases will be forcing Suicide Squad to backpedal once again.
