Update: Sony has now confirmed that the PS5 games showcase date is set for June 11 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET! Check out the other details below via the PlayStation Blog.
Now that the event is confirmed for June 11, I wanted to add that this pre-taped program will be broadcast at 1080p and 30 frames per second. This eased the show’s production process during a time when many of our team and developers are working from home. The games you’ll see on Thursday will look even better when you play them on PS5 with a 4K TV, as you’d expect.
It’s also best if you watch while wearing headphones, if you can — there’s some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it’s pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.
With Sony (understandably) postponing its big PS5 games showcase event last week due to the protests regarding the death of George Floyd, PlayStation fans are left wondering when the new PS5 games showcase date will take place.
Well, if this recent Twitch ad is to be believed, it’ll be this week on June 11! This was posted by reliable industry insider Nibel over on Twitter:

Mind, this has not been confirmed by Sony just yet, but we’ve reached out about this to the company, and will update the post if we hear anything back.
