Sony stops attending this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), possibly the world’s largest game show. This is the second consecutive year that the company has decided to miss out and rather focus on other smaller events to promote its next games.
Reported first by Gamesindustry.biz, Sony feels that the vision of the E3 2020 does not fit the company’s plans for this year. “We will develop our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of events for consumers worldwide. Our approach is to make sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content, ”a Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesman told the publication.
Sony has been running official announcements of the next next-generation PlayStation console constantly. The last revelation was the PS5 logo at CES 2020 that didn’t change much of the PS4 logo. It is still unclear whether Sony will announce the PS5 at its own independent event or during another event or exhibition.
In contrast, Xbox already unveiled the Xbox Series X in the 2020 Game Awards. Naturally, more announcements will be made in E3 2020 along with the games that reach the platform. While we don’t know for sure if we’ll see new or exclusive titles, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has already confirmed the presence of the company in the expo.
Our team is working hard on E3, we hope to share it with everyone who loves to play what awaits us. Our art form has been constantly driven by the cross section of creativity and technical progress. 2020 is an important year on that trip for Team Xbox. # XboxE3 # E32020
