The report comes after Sony announced an August State Of Play presentation
A PlayStation official has reportedly confirmed that Sony will reveal more PlayStation 5 news later this month.
According to a report from Bloomberg, the recently announced PlayStation State Of Play presentation won’t be the only the event the company holds this month, as another stream that will supposedly reveal more PS5 news is currently in the works.
“An official at the PlayStation unit, who asked not to be identified because the plan is not yet public, said Sony’s next announcement regarding the PlayStation 5 is tentatively scheduled for this month,” Bloomberg noted.
It’s not been revealed what the announcement could bring, although many fans are attentively waiting for pre-order information containing a price and release date.
Recently, the PlayStation Global Head of Marketing, Ed Lempel, spoke about when people can expect to hear PS5 pre-order news, after rumours circulated that an announcement was imminent.
“No, definitely not now,” Lempel said at the time in regards to the rumours. “We don’t know what happened there, we have nothing to do with it. I think it’s safe to say: we will let you know when pre-order will happen. It’s not going to happen within minutes notice.”
The upcoming State Of Play presentation will focus on third-party news for PS4 and PlayStation VR, with a few updates on already-announced titles for the PS5. However, there will be no updates on any games helmed by PlayStation Studios. Additionally, there will be no PS5 news, including hardware, business and pre-order information.
