PlayStation 5 reveal officially has a new date
Update: Sony has now made it official with a tweet. The livestream will kick off on June 11th at 1:00 p.m.
Original story: Sony had originally been scheduled to host a big showcase for the PlayStation 5 last Thursday, before the company decided to step back and delay the stream in the wake of widespread protests over police brutality against the black community. Now, we have a good idea of when the rescheduled event will take place.
A new ad spotted running on Twitch by ResetEra user Scotia, since corroborated by a number of other users, says the PlayStation 5 livestream will now take place on Thursday, June 11th, at 1 p.m. PT. (That’s 4 p.m. ET, and 9 p.m. in the U.K.) Though PlayStation’s official social channels have yet to confirm the new date, it appears to just be a matter of time—the ad looks about as official as it gets.
With just a one-week delay, it’s likely that much of the content will remain the same as what we would have seen last week. According to both official statements and rumors, we can expect the PlayStation 5 showcase to run over an hour and feature looks at quite a few games that’ll launch on the next-generation console.
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to launch this holiday season, and Sony is confident that the ongoing COVD-19 pandemic won’t impact that plan.
