PlayStation’s E3 2018 Showcase will focus on Death Stranding and 3 other titles

At this year’s E3, Sony will not be making any hardware announcements, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden has confirmed on the latest episode of the official PlayStation Blogcast.

Instead, PlayStation’s E3 2018 showcase — which will be streamed live on Monday, June 11, 6PM Pacific Time (Tuesday, June 12, 9AM Singapore/Malaysia time at GMT+8 hours) — will focus on providing “exclusive looks, deep dives” on four Worldwide Studios titles.

Here’s what Layden had to say about each of them:

  • Death Stranding (Kojima Productions)

    Shawn Layden (SL): “We’ve got a complete new report for everybody on what’s been happening with the title so far.”


  • Ghost of Tsujima (Sucker Punch)

    “From Sucker Punch and their great successes with the Infamous franchise and, before that, Sly Cooper… For them to take on Ghost and all the ambition around that… you will not be disappointed when you see it.”


  • Marvel’s Spider-Man (Insomniac Games)

    “You’ll have seen some of that coverage recently, but we’re going to have a ‘new drop’ for everybody at E3.”


  • The Last of Us Part II (Naughty Dog)

    “We’ll have a full new scope and treatment on that, to show polish on the game and to give people an understanding of where we’re going in Part 2. We’re really excited about it — it’s going to be a very strong centerpiece to all of the four titles we’ve talked about.”


But that’s not all; as usual, on top of the exclusive looks at these four key PlayStation exclusives, Sony’s E3 showcase will also feature other announcements from 3rd-party publishers and independent development studios.

Tune in on June 11, 6PM Pacific Time (June 12, 9AM SG/MY time) to find out what else is in store.
