After weeks of rumors and assumptions, the curtain has finally been raised: the appointment with PlayStation Showcase 2021 is for 9 September at 22:00 Italian time.
After the usual absence at E3 2021, the event is an excellent opportunity to keep an eye on the news coming to PS5 as well as a tasty appetizer in view of Deathloop , expected for September 14.
What will actually be shown is subject to the usual secrecy of great occasions, but according to a leak there could also be room for the highly anticipated God of War Ragnarok .
Trustworthy or not, it is now certain that the title will be cross-gen, and to follow it in this double fate there will be Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 .
For now we know that the showcase will run 40 minutes and will include further updates after the presentation is over, for which players have been advised to stay tuned. p>
This time, giving a preview of what PlayStation has in store for the community is David Jaffe , creator of God of War , who specified that for the occasion « great things are planned».
Jaffe’s intervention took place during a streaming and was followed by a tweet where the game designer specified that the announcements of the showcase « will rock » and “ gamers will freak out “.
« I won’t tell you what’s on at the showcase, and I don’t know everything, but I know a couple of things and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a traditional PlayStation event focused on first-party titles, ”continued Jaffe.
« I can’t wait to see how the audience will react . I myself haven’t seen what I’m talking about yet, but I’m very excited ».
Regarding the previously rumored presence of God of War Ragnarok , Jaffe concluded by stating that « I can’t say if there will be or not because I don’t know anything about this strong> ».
It is understandable that with such advances it is impossible to curb enthusiasm. At this point all that remains is to wait Thursday 9 September to find out the whole truth.
Returning one last time to David Jaffe, it seems that Twisted Metal , one of the IPs he helped create, is set to return in 2023.
The showcase might be the right occasion to take a look at some unannounced games, and if we consider that the budget for PS5 titles is set to increase, it could really be something big. p>
Could this be the right opportunity to review Capcom’s mysterious Deep Down ? According to Shawn Layden’s statements, it certainly seems not.
