PlayStation Showcase 2021 – what to expect?

In its blog post about the event, Sony specifically points out that there will be no PSVR 2 news.

“One thing to note: PlayStation’s next generation of VR won’t make an appearance this time. But there will still be plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small,” it says.

What we can expect is “a look into the future of PS5” which includes updates from PlayStation Studios.

Over the years, it’s acquired Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, Horizon Zero Dawn’s Guerrilla Games, Ratchet & Clank’s Insomniac Games, and more recently, Housemarque – the studio behind PS5 exclusive Returnal.

It won’t just be limited to AAA blockbusters; the blog post says there’ll be “plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small.”

So be sure to tune in if you want to see what’s in store for the PS5 as we gear up for the holiday season and beyond.
