According to a recent statement from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, a PlayStation Showcase event will likely take place in May, with a chance that it may be pushed further to “very, very early” June. “I would probably safely say that’s May at this point, but in general I’m going to continue saying before Summer Game Fest, because that’s just the safest way of doing it,” said Grubb. “But yes, May, maybe very, very early June; that seems like the right time to get that PlayStation Showcase.” Grubb has previously claimed the event will be “massive” and will “set up the second phase of the PS5”.
