March 2015 PlayStation Plus Free Games Announcement Isn’t Ready Yet, May Not Happen Until Next Week

Update 3 (March 3):

The March 2015 PlayStation Plus free games in North America and Europe have been revealed.

Update 2 (March 3):

The developers behind Octodad: Dadliest Catch tweeted out thatOctodad is not one of the PS+ games next month.” When people thought this meant it would be a free game this month, they added, “To be more clear there are currently no plans for Octodad to be a Free PS+ game.”

We should be getting an announcement about the free games soon for March, so stay tuned.

Update (March 2):

As spotted by a user on NeoGAF, the PlayStation France Twitter account responded to someone asking about the March 2015 PlayStation Plus free games today, saying, “Hello, they will be announced tomorrow.”

Stay tuned for details about the March 2015 Instant Game Collection as soon as they’re announced.

Original Story (February 27):

Having missed the usual announcement day of the Thursday before the titles go live, and then nothing happening so far today either, PlayStation Blog Europe Manager Fred Dutton spoke out on the lack of a March 2015 PlayStation Plus reveal:

Sorry to keep you good folks waiting. I appreciate you’re all really keen to see the line-up and that it’s frustrating having to hang on a bit longer than usual. Alas, we’re still not quite ready to make the announcement. I can’t give you a firm time at present as to when the post will go live, but we’re working to get it to you as soon as possible. It may well be next week at this stage.

Since the work day is practically over in Europe – and Sony likes to announce the North American and European PS+ line-ups at the same time – Fred’s estimation of next week may turn out to be true.

As of right now, the six unannounced free games are still scheduled to go live on Tuesday, March 3 in North America and Wednesday, March 4 in Europe.

Whenever Sony does announce the March 2015 PS+ free games, we’ll let you know.

While it might not be a game, we do know that the first three episodes of Powers will go live for PS+ members in North America on March 10 (Europe is getting it at some point in 2015).

There’s also the Spring Fever 2015 promotion in North America, which saves you 10% off select new release indie titles.

What do you hope to see go free in March 2015?
