PlayStation Chief Hints Big Surprise Coming This New Year, What Could It Be?
Last week, The Game Awards 2018 was held. Although there was no mention of the PlayStation 5 (PS5) during the event, it seems Sony has a surprise for its fans this New Year.
The Disappointment Followed By A Tease
During the Game Awards 2018, PlayStation chief Shawn Layden briefly appeared to open the show alongside Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime and Xbox’s Phil Spencer. However, fans were disappointed that while Reggie and Phil talked about their respective platforms on the later part of the event, Shawn didn’t say anything and instead stayed out of the limelight.
In fact, some fans even went to Twitter to express their disappointment. Here’s one from Stormthebard (@Stormthebard) who is a prominent figure in the gaming community.
“Have to say I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see @ShawnLayden talk about anything for @PlayStation hoping we got good things on the horizon. I love Playstation and representing it on @WatchMixer as much as I do with Platinum runs and exclusives 🙂”
Shawn then replied to @Stormthebard, @PlayStation, and @WatchMixer. The PlayStation chief’s response was a bit cryptic, which led to reports speculate that we might hear some updates regarding the PS5 or something big.
“See you in the new year.”
So What Can We Expect?
Ever since the response, so far the PlayStation chief has been radio silent about it. All we have are speculations from reports and from the tweet’s comment section.
Of course, one of those speculations is that it could be related to the PS5. Expecting an unveiling event will be hard. Well, there have been rumors that Sony could launch a small reveal in mid-2019 followed by a full reveal in the run-up to Christmas 2019 at the PSX 2019.
If it really is about the PS5, the company probably will just make an announcement about where they are right now with the PS5’s progress or something along those lines. Take this with a pinch of salt though.
Another speculation is that it could be related to the PSVR 2. Well, there have been rumors that it will be launched alongside the PS5.
Aside from that, some people on the comment section of Shawn’s tweet wished that it could be related to games. Another Twitter user wished that it could be a new PS4 handheld device.
But what do you think? Is it really related to the PS5 and the PSVR 2? If not, what could it be? Tell us in the comment section below.
