Sony announced that next year will not attend the well-known video game fair held annually in Los Angeles. Nor will it hold parallel events for those dates.
This has been a real surprise for everyone, since the launch of the first PlayStation in 1994, Sony has not lost any E3.
The explanation Sony has been this:
"As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for creative opportunities to engage the community.
Fans of PlayStation are everything to us and we always want to innovate, think differently and try new ways to satisfy the players. So we decided not to participate in E3 in 2019.
We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and we can not wait to share our plans with you."
The news is, by all accounts, a hard blow to the fairand speculation suggests that the launch of the PlayStation 5 could occur in 2020 for the same reason, since they would not skip the E3 if they announced it to the drum and plate, as would be normal.
They also tell us: "Many interesting things will come and we hope to share them soon. Some of our biggest games will have important milestones next year, so let's work hard to take advantage of them"
At the moment, Sony has some games announced for next year, such as Past days or Dreams, but others like The last of us 2, Ghosts of Tsushima O Beach of death It is not certain that they will leave in 2019.
We'll see how E3 suffers without one of its big companies, will it give more importance to the Microsoft conference? Or knowing that Nintendo also happens to your & # 39; Direct & # 39; will it make them seem like the last one out?
