Another day, another supposed leak. As always, take it with a pinch of salt, though this time there might be reason to believe this one…
A series of supposed leaked emails have made their way to the likes of 4Chan and NeoGaf, suggesting that we won’t be hearing too much about upcoming PlayStation exclusives, The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost Of Tsushima for a good few months.
According to the (unverified) leaks, PlayStation will be sitting pretty on its upcoming titles until its next State of Play stream, a Nintendo Direct-like event that Sony seems to be favouring over more traditional platforms like E3.
The leak suggests that the next Sony State of Play won’t be happening until November this year, with a date of November 1st apparently pencilled in.
It’s believed that three new games will be the focus of the SoP: Death Stranding, which is to release a week later on November 8; Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and The Last of Us 2.
Of course, it’s the latter that we’re the most interested in, as the highly-anticipated Naughty Dog title doesn’t yet have a release date.
The leak says that TLOU2 will be getting its first new trailer since E3 2018, and it also says that a release date of May 2020 will also be revealed.
As for Ghost Of Tsushima, well, that’s a title that’s sadly missing from the emails, with the leak stating: “It seems that the development of the game is proceeding in a more than favorable manner within the SP studios, but that it has also encountered considerable delays at the same time, mainly due to greater work on the technical side of the software for textures and framerates, to favor in particular the technical upgrade that will be given by the new hardware features of PS5.”
Again, pinch of salt at the ready, but this is definitely looking plausible to me…
