We are still hungover from what was seen at the PlayStation Showcase 2023, which has generated very different opinions among PS5 users. While Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay has impressed with its potential, the vast absence of other names like The Last of Us multiplayer is raising some concerns. Faced with this event so atypical compared to what Sony used to do in recent years, one of the great insiders in the industry has offered his impressions, assuring that PS5 has very powerful games in the works that were not shown on this occasion.
Tom Henderson He is one of the most active figures in relation to the PlayStation universe, since he was in charge of revealing Project Q ahead of time, the laptop that will be launched this year, among many other things. According to Henderson in an Insider Gaming post, PlayStation Studios has various projects that could be shown right now and that were reserved for some unknown reason, so it bets on a second PlayStation Showcase for this year. Some of the names he mentions are Wolverine, Death Stranding 2, Rise of the Ronin, and the multiplayer of The Last of Us and HorizonAlthough there will surely be more projects.
However, he points out that games like The Last of Us multiplayer and Death Stranding 2 are likely to make their appearance at the event dedicated to the Summer Game Fest on June 12. Even so, as Henderson affirms, the little presence of the first party in the event is especially striking, taking into account the information handled by the journalist.
PlayStation Showcase 2023 misses the start of PS5 Phase 2
That is the phrase that Tom Henderson uses to define an event that did not seem like a disaster to him, but did below expectations. In fact, he assures that she gave him the feeling of being a PlayStation Showcase dedicated to the next twelve months of releases that will come to PS5, saving the big announcements for another time in the future, perhaps destined for the end of the year to show the true potential of the brand’s exclusive studios.
For the moment, it will be time to wait and see if Sony brings some of the big titles to the next round of events that are coming up in the next few days, since the relationship of the Japanese company with Geoff Keighley is very good and last year they revealed the release of The Last of Us Part I at Summer Game Fest.
