Sony has just announced the next PlayStation Showcase 2021 Broadcast. Taking place next Thursday, Sept. 9, the 40-minute livestream will reveal upcoming PS5 games from first- and third-party studios “releasing this holiday and beyond.” The wildly popular next-gen PlayStation console has been coming in and out of stock at retailers since its launch last November.
The company didn’t mention any games we’ll see, but it feels like a good time to show us the sequel to 2018’s God of War or Gran Turismo 7 — both are scheduled to come out in 2022. The much-anticipated Horizon Forbidden West is also due out next year, and it feels like we’re overdue an announcement of a sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man after last year’s Miles Morales spinoff.
We won’t be seeing PlayStation 5 VR during this showcase, Sony noted.
When does the PlayStation Showcase start?
The PlayStation Showcase will be livestreamed starting from 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET, which converts to 9 p.m. BST or 8 a.m. Friday AEST.
How to watch the PlayStation Showcase
The event will be streaming from PlayStation’s YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ll embed the YouTube link below as soon as it’s available. Be sure to stick around after the main presentation, since developers will give us “more updates” about the featured games.
