Sony’s Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden confirmed that PlayStation Experience will not be happing in 2018. This confirmation occurred on this week’s episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, the official podcast of the PlayStation Blog, where Layden was sad to make the announcement and said he knows it will upset many fans.
Layden seemed to explain that due to 2019 not having an expansive lineup of exclusives other than Days Gone and Dreams, Sony decided it shouldn’t host the event this year. He said that rather than raise expectations of fans high by holding the event, they opted to just not have it altogether.
It’s worth noting that Sony still has other games lined up, such as Ghost of Tsushima, Death Standing, and The Last of Us Part II, but clearly none of these titles would have much to show or talk about at the event.
Even though it’ll be skipping out in 2018, hopefully, we see its return down the road as it was a great event for all attendees.
