PlayStation Showcase 2021: Where To Watch, Time, Games & More

They better announce Ape Escape.


Sony have announced that they will be hosting what’s known as the PlayStation Showcase 2021, a presentation designed to showcase the best and brightest games coming to the PS5 in the run-up to Christmas and the New Year. Here’s everything that you need to know about the presentation.


When Is The PlayStation Showcase 2021?

The PlayStation Showcase 2021 will take place on Thursday, September 9th, starting at 1:00pm Pacific Time / 9:00pm BST / 10:00pm CEST. The Showcase will last for about 40 minutes, though there will be additional presentations and features after the showcase has concluded from development teams who appear during the Showcase.


Where Can I Watch The PlayStation Showcase 2021?

The PlayStation Showcase 2021 will be streamed live simultaneously on YouTube and Twitch next Thursday. If you want to tune in, those will be your best bet.


What Can We Expect From The PlayStation Showcase 2021?

As mentioned. the Showcase will feature 40 minutes of updates. More specifically, according to the PlayStation Blog announcement post, this will be a look into “the future of PS5”. The Showcase will include “updates from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry’s most imaginative developers, for games releasing this holiday and beyond.”

The announcement post also clarifies that the Showcase will not feature the next-generation of PSVR, which was revealed earlier this year. However, it will include games and updates from developers both big and small, so expect huge announcements alongside your next potentially favourite indie game.

As for what games we can predict will show up at the event, God of War: Ragnarok seems like a decent bet to show in at least some capacity. Maybe we won’t see gameplay or a release date, but some kind of update is plausible. Alongside that, titles like Gran Turismo 7, GTA V’s next-gen release and the rumoured multiplayer update for The Last of Us Part 2 are all solid predictions.

That being said, if there’s no Ape Escape, we riot.
