When asked about his knowledge of Sony’s upcoming plans, Schreier confirmed the validity of the recent rumors about an impending PS5 reveal event.

As far as I know, right now, Sony is still on track to do one thing by early June, let’s say, or by mid-June, let’s say.

Schreier was quick to qualify his statement by pointing to the volatility of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The unprecedented nature of the crisis means platform holders, developers, and publishers are wrestling with an ever-changing landscape. We’ve seen highly-anticipated games such as The Last of Us Part II delayed and events such as E3 canceled due to the pandemic.

As a consequence, plans have and are likely to change regularly. Despite backing a June reveal, Schreier recommends caution.

This latest nugget appears to corroborate similar news from Venture Beat reporter Jeffrey Grubb. Writing last month in a Resetera thread discussing Sony’s PlayStation 5 plans, Grubb pointed to June 4 as the date for PS5 reveal event.

Sony has remained silent since unveiling the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller last month. We’re due some new PS5 news. But, while a June reveal appears to be on the cards, it may be best to temper expectations until Sony officially confirms its plans.

June is only a few short weeks away, so we may not have to wait all that long to learn more about Sony’s secretive PlayStation 5 – and hopefully see the console’s final design.
