PlayStation 5 Games Reveal Event Date Set

Get ready for an hour-long look at the PlayStation 5 games we can expect for the system's holiday launch.

After weeks of rumors about a June PlayStation 5 event, Sony finally announced a solid date. The PlayStation 5 event will air June 4 at 1 p.m. PST/4 p.m. EST on YouTube and Twitch, and it'll last for "a bit more than an hour."

Following the Road to PlayStation deep dive into the PS5's hardware and the DualSense controller reveal, this PS5 event is all about the games. Sony President and CEO Jim Ryan said in a PlayStation Blog post that it'll show off first- and third-party games, from studios "larger and smaller, those newer and those more established."

And all the PlayStation 5 games shown during the event are planned for launch, according to Ryan.

Don't expect anything more about the console itself or the PlayStation 5 price, which experts believe won't come until later (potentially after Microsoft announces the Xbox Series X price).

The original post is over on the PlayStation Blog. We'll be keeping a very close eye on this indeed, so stay tuned to GameSkinny for more PlayStation 5 news as it develops.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
