Playtime Experience, claiming that they are trying to find ways to engage with their fans in 2019 Of course, they have not yet described what that means, but one would assume that they are going to rely more on the state of play live streams to announce future projects.
But, according to Switched On Gamer, who will have this information via Twitter on the name of GraviKnight, Sony will hold a keynote conference at Gamescom 2019., however, the leak didn't give a specific date, as only the publishers and studios that will be part of this year's event.
If the leak does end up being true, it´s be Sony's first public conference since last year's E3, where they finally showed gameplay from The Last of Us Part II. Naturally, if they do end up doing a keynote at this year's Gamescom, fans will probably expect to see a follow-up trailer for the aforementioned sequel to Naughty Dog's 2013 release, where the developer will finally reveal the game's release date.
As of this writing, it´s being heavily rumored that The Last of Us will be released this February, and upon release, it´ll have four different editions.
As previously mentioned, it was over a year since Sony last held a public conference, one would assume that the longtime gaming giant would have plenty of show off at Gamescom 2019 aside from The Last of Us Part II, as fans are eagerly waiting to hear more regarding Sucker Punch Productions' next project called Ghost of Tsushima, which still doesn't have a release date attached to it.
Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima was revealed during last year's decision to include some gameplay in its first trailer, they haven't related to the game since.
It’s highly unlikely that Sony will release the release dates for Ghosts of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II Gamescom, as it’s probably either be one or the other. Given the fact that the dairy of the two games is, by far, the most popular title, it is possible that Sony could have saved the release date for either The Game Awards on December 6 or for their PlayStation Experience event, which typically takes place in mid-December.
