This news comes as a major disappointment to many fans who were looking forward to trying their hands on Sony’s upcoming titles for the PlayStation 4 (PS4). The Last of Us Part II is easily one of the most hotly anticipated titles of this year, created by Naughty Dog.
According to Sony’s recent blog post, the gamers would have been able to play a demo of the game, most likely the same demo which was given to select media last year. Along with that, Sony also had planned to carry other recent and upcoming titles such as MediaMolecule’s Dreams, Marvel’s Iron Man VR, Nioh 2, Doom Eternal, Spelunky 2, in its demo area. It recently updated the same post to announce that it’s pulling out of the convention due to the Coronavirus scare.
Sony has a few big upcoming titles for its current generation console, after which, it will most likely dedicate all its efforts towards its next generation console, the PS5. This new console will compete with Microsoft’s upcoming console, dubbed Xbox Series X, and would support next-gen features such as ray-tracing, 8K resolution support, and native SSD storage. However, the PS5 is still shrouded in mystery, as apart from some leaked performance demo we got last year and the official logo reveal at CES 2020, we don’t know anything else. Microsoft at least teased what its new console will look like but we still don’t know anything about the PS5’s design. Both consoles are expected to launch later in the year, so probably, we’ll hear more along the sidelines of E3.
