Out of the absolute blue, Sony have announced that the PlayStation 5 will be unveiled next week on Thursday, June 4.
Taking to Twitter just over an hour ago, PlayStation tweeted: “Join us Thursday, June 4 at 1:00pm Pacific time for a look at the future of gaming on PlayStation 5.”
It’s safe to say the tweet has since blown up, with fans all over the globe buzzing with excitement for what could be unveiled during the event.
The tweet itself already has over 20,000 retweets, as well as over 50,000 likes, so it’s easy to see that fans are buzzing with what could be in store.
We already know what the PlayStation 5 controllers will look like, and it’s been heavily rumoured for some time now how the console itself will look.
However, it now seems that next week we will find out a lot more information from Sony with regards to their next-gen console.
As well as the tweet, Sony’s President and CEO Jim Ryan confirmed the long-awaited news in a blog post, announcing that the future of PlayStation will be showcased during an hour-long stream that kicks off at 9pm on Thursday.
We must stress as of yet it’s unclear whether or not they will be revealing the actual console itself, but they will be demonstrating some games coming over the next few months.
Safe to say it is time to get excited.
“There are few things as exciting as the launch of a new console. While this road to launch has been a bit… different, we are as thrilled as ever to bring you with us on this journey to redefine the future of video games,” Ryan wrote.
“We’ve shared technical specifications and shown you the new DualSense wireless controller. But what is a launch without games?”
“That’s why I’m excited to share that we will soon give you a first look at the games you’ll be playing after PlayStation 5 launches this holiday. The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware.”
