PlayStation's Shawn Layden Confirms There Will Be No PSX This Year

Welp.

Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden confirmed on today's PlayStation Blogcast that there will be no PlayStation Experience, or PSX, this year. Layden cites a lack of content as the reason why there will be no dedicated North American event this year.

During the podcast Layden announced the news regarding PSX. "We wouldn't have enough to bring people all together in some location in North America to have that event," Layden confirms. "We don't want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on it. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience."

More like, 'Left Stranding' am I right?

Layden says that PlayStation has made real progress on many of its projects and is focusing on 2019's confirmed slate of games, specifically Days Gone and Dreams. Other projects in the pipeline that don't have confirmed release windows include The Last of Us Part 2 and Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. Aside from a brief trailer for Death Stranding at Tokyo Game Show, we haven't heard from either project since E3 this year.

While unfortunate, it's probably for the best. There haven't been any major new announcements at E3 this year other than deeper look into games we know are in development and it's probably difficult to center an entire show around the same games yet again.

Layden did specifically single out North America however so there's a likely chance we will see some more details at Paris Games Week again where Sony is not the sole presence.
