PSX – PlayStation Experience for 2018 is not going to happen, confirms Sony’s Worldwide Studio head, Shawn Layden. According to Layden, Sony has had made the difficult decision of skipping the PSX event based on their stance on several projects. He also said that Sony doesn’t want to let the fans set their expectations too high and later on, not deliver.
Here’s what Shawn Layden had to say during a live PlayStation Broadcast;
We won’t have it in the States this year. Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone. But we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on that. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience.
This particular announcement has come out just after a smaller Sony E3 event. The event was mainly focused at titles such as Spider-Man, The Last of US: Part 2, Death Stranding, and Ghost of Tsushima. At the event, fans were treated to some debut trailers of third-party games such as Resident Evil 2 and Control.
PSX or also known as PlayStation Experience is a yearly Sony event that initially started in Europe in 2000. Later on, it was once again started in America in 2014. Since then, this event has been held every year but it seems like this tradition is now about to be broken.
Fans are hopeful that this event will, in fact, come back next year with more of the great titles. Until then, fans must focus on titles that have been released recently and the ones that are about to come out.
