Sony Apparently Has A PAX Panel, But Don't Expect PS5 News

In fact, don't expect anything from Sony's supposed PAX Online presentation next week.

3 Comments

A placeholder has been created for a Sony presentation during PAX Online. A description for the event has not been filled out as of yet, but it is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 18.

Whatever presentation Sony has planned will last for one hour, starting at 10:45 PM PT / 1:45 AM ET. The company hasn't publicly commented on the showcase, and it's unclear what Sony will discuss. During a PSVR Spotlight this week, Sony said there would be no news on PlayStation 5. It's likely the company won't talk about its next-gen console next week.

And since Sony has been quiet about the PlayStation 5 following a June 2020 reveal event, it's difficult to speculate about what might be unveiled during this upcoming PAX Online presentation.

PAX Online runs from September 12-20 and will be completely free to the public. The organizer said it will feature "a steady 24/7 stream of content, events, discussions, and gameplay." CD Projekt Red and Square Enix also have placeholder livestreams on September 12 and September 18, respectively.

In other next-gen news, Microsoft has officially revealed the release date for the Xbox Series S and Series X, both of which launch on November 10. While we still don't know how much it costs or when it drops, you can check out our PlayStation 5 preorder guide to be notified when its release date emerges.
