Sony did not disclose exactly what will be discussed during this year’s showcase, though it is likely that the company will give updates on Horizon Forbidden West and the next God of War gameplay, both of which are scheduled for release in 2022. Sony did mention that its next generation of VR, which is reportedly set for release late next year, will not make an appearance during the showcase.
Next week’s event marks the first of its kind in almost a year; during the showcase’s last iteration, Sony officially unveiled the PlayStation 5. Following its release, the company announced in July that it had sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 units across the globe, making it the fastest-selling console in the brand’s history.
