Following a fantastic round of showings at E3 2015 and 2016, Sony’s 2017 E3 conference seemed somewhat lacking in new reveals. It turns out that there is a reason for that on Sony’s end, as Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that some planned reveals were held back for various reasons.
Speaking in an interview with JagatPlay, Sony Worldwide Studios head, Shuhei Yoshida explained that Sony did hold a few showings back: “There are things we have held; things we chose not to show during this E3. Of course, there will be some more news coming out from our teams later this year.”
This likely means that Sony will be showing more at the PlayStation Experience event in December. One particularly glaring omission from E3 this year was the reveal of the new game coming from Suckerpunch, the same studio behind Infamous and Sly Cooper. Aside from that, many fans were hoping to get a glimpse of The Last of Us II, though that game is still some ways off from releasing.
KitGuru Says: Given how light Sony’s E3 was on new games this year, hearing that some games were held back makes a lot of sense. Still, it does help build excitement for PSX later in the year.
