With E3 literally just around the corner, Playstation fans are eager to hear from Sony during their conference on Monday night (6 pm PT), and we finally have word on some of the titles that will be officially shown, and what we can still only speculate on.
In an interview with Glixel, Sony Europe boss Jim Ryan and Sony Interactive Entertainment America president Shawn Layden confirmed that the conference will cover five highly anticipated exclusives:
- God of War, from SCE Santa Monica Studio
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, from Naughty Dog
- Spider-Man, from Insomniac
- Gran Turismo Sport, from Polyphany Digital
- and Days Gone, by Sony’s Bend Studio
Ryan also stated that Sony will be pushing their partnerships with Call of Duty, Destiny 2, Red Dead, and Star Wars with EA. When Layden was asked about news on any new titles from developers Sucker Punch (InFamous, Sly Cooper) or FromSoftware (Bloodborne), he laughed and shrugged off the question. This leaves an opening for possibilities, but I guess we will have to wait until Monday to find out for sure.
One question that Layden did answer, one that I’m sure is on every PS4 owners’ mind, is how game genius Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is coming along. His response was that Sony is “partnering with him and financing development on Death Stranding. His team has taken the Decima engine that Guerrilla built for Horizon Zero Dawn and they’re using that as the base for Death Stranding. Both teams are working from a joint code base now and building on it. It’s kind of like a holy grail in game development.” While this sounds promising, we do not know for sure if Sony or even Kojima himself will provide a new trailer or more information on the mysterious Playstation 4 exclusive.
With less than a week to go, we should have more confirmed titles from Sony to announce before the conference on Monday, June 12, but at least what we know of for sure are games we are all aching for.
