Next PlayStation Showcase Could Happen Before Summer Game Fest

The date for the next PlayStation Showcase event could take place before Summer Game Fest in June, insider Jeff Grubb has claimed. Sony’s highly anticipated event has yet to be officially announced, but Grubb has suggested that it will be broadcast before Geoff Keighley’s annual gaming event, which is set to go live on June 8.

When is the next PlayStation Showcase?

Grubb made the claim via Twitter, publishing a list of summer gaming events and the dates on which they’ll take place. This includes the Xbox Showcase and Starfield Direct, which Grubb alleges will take place after Summer Game Fest on June 11, an Ubisoft Forward presentation on June 12, and the PlayStation Showcase in a vaguely defined ‘before Summer Game Fest’ window.

This means that PlayStation Showcase will likely take place in early June, potentially at some point between June 1–7. It is still unclear what is set to be shown during this event, but there are plenty of upcoming PS5 games that players want to see more of, most notably Insomniac’s two upcoming Marvel games, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine.

It was previously rumored that the Showcase would take place before E3 2023, but E3 is now canceled. Grubb also noted that the Showcase would include bigger and better games after the last disappointing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League State of Play presentation, which the Game Mess podcast host called an “obligation.”
