Sony have recently announced that they will not be present at E3 2019 for the first time in 24 years. In their announcement, Sony stated that “as the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community, Playstation fans mean the world to us and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 2019. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you”. 


From this, Playstation have decided to pull out of one of the biggest entertainment expos in the gaming industry. It is hoped that Playstation will return to E3 and possibly announce the successor of the five-year old Playstation 4. In addition, Sony have also stated that Playstation “will not activate or hold a press conference around E3” which might disappoint Playstation fans. However, Sony haven’t been the only company to have pulled out in the past, Microsoft, who released the Xbox, held most presentations at the LA Live theatre last year and Electronic Arts who create the popular game Sims and Devolver Digital who published Serious Sam and Hotline Miami both held their own presentations separately from E3.


Further information has been released that Sony decided that the few games they have upcoming “wouldn’t be enough” to make the Playstation Experience worthwhile next year – some of these games include Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and Last of Us II that, at the time of writing, haven’t be released. Who knows when Playstation will come back to E3 and who knows when they will reveal their much anticipated successor consoles?
