A lack of game announcements and releases hasn’t stopped PlayStation from finding itself in the center of news lately. May seems to be all about Sony saying all of the wrong things, even when its studios want to speak out for what’s right. The gender discrimination lawsuit against Sony, which was dismissed last month, is also back in a new form. Between that and Norman Reedus possibly leaking Death Stranding 2, it hasn’t been a good month for PlayStation.
However, we also got a good look at PlayStation’s plans over the next few years ahead of a State of Play on June 2. Let’s take a look.

Respect does not equal agreement. But it is fundamental to who we are as a company and as a valued global brand.”
