After staying quiet since last December, PlayStation Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden confirmed there would not be a PlayStation Experience in 2018.
During the PlayStation Blogcast, Layden said, “For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we decided to not hold PlayStation Experience this year.”
Layden hinted that fans not in North America might have something to look forward to. “We won’t have it in the States this year.”
He continued to confirm the reasons why the company made the decision. “The reasons behind that really are we don’t have… we have a lot of progress that we’re making on out games… Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone.”
Layden also said that the increased usage of the PlayStation Blog and social media attributed to the lack of upcoming announcements. The company wants to find more ways to get their announcements out to the public, not just through press conferences.
If you’re wondering how great Spider-Man is, we have a review right here for you, where we think “Insomniac Games was just the shot-in-the-arm the franchise needed.”
In other PlayStation news, the company recently announced the PlayStation Classic, a miniature version of the original console, packed with 20 games. While only five have been announced, here’s a list of fifteen titles we think should fill out the rest of the lineup.
