The PS5 unveiling is coming soon … this time. Earlier this year, a presentation by PS5's leading system architect, Mark Cerny, plunged deep into the console's innards. Before that, the internet was full of rumors about consoles and games, all of which were free.
However, a reliable source (well-known game journalist Jeff Grubb) has announced that the PS5 release date will be Thursday, June 4th. We tend to believe him: Now the Xbox Series X cards are on the table in terms of console, specifications, and third place. At party games, the ball is stuck in the PS5 pitch.
Not only is the console revealed, according to Grubb. Grubb has tweeted that the event will be known as "Slate Of PlayStation" and promises that a number of PS5 games will be revealed alongside the PS5.
Many cross-platform titles from third-party providers, such as Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, have already broken cover after the large third-party stream. In addition, we know a few other titles such as Koop RPG Outrider, Battle Royales Call of Duty: Warzones and Fortnite on PS5 and XSX as well as the exclusive raider Godfall for PS5. Grubb promises more games, as his answer to a fan tweet shows:
Should be a whole bunch of games. A lot of.May 13, 2020
What kind of games can we expect that have not yet been announced? Well, we could see PS5 iterations of the upcoming PS4 games Cyberpunk 2077, Ghosts of Tsushima, Final Fantasy VII and The Last of Us Part II. The Xbox Series X has made headlines with its "Smart Delivery" service, which updates certain Xbox One games to their Series X counterparts absolutely for free. We hope to get an equivalent service for the PS5 as many of the same titles that get this benefit will end up on both consoles.
We're also hoping for next-generation exclusive products like Ubisoft's Gods and Monsters as well as more Godfall footage and possibly some sequels like God of War II and Metal Gear Solid VI. Sony has reportedly tried to buy Konami properties such as the Metal Gear and Silent Hill franchises to bring them into the house as Sony Interactive Entertainment productions. If that's true, we could expect an announcement, perhaps in collaboration with the legendary playmaker Hideo Kojima.
We cannot wait for the upcoming stream. Epic Games recently showed its upcoming Unreal Engine 5 gameplay live on a PS5, and the results were frankly incredible. Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic, claims the PS5 will be more powerful than some of the top gaming computers. The massive solid-state drive enables incredibly detailed, seamless games with no load times.

Cool, isn't it? We can look forward to more amazing PS5 shots as we approach June 4th. This "Slate of PlayStation" could be a direct reaction to Microsoft's sadly received gameplay stream, which contained relatively little actual gameplay and consisted mainly of footage. Watch this room.
