Could a new PlayStation Showcase be considered very soon? In any case, Sony announces that important information will be revealed this same month of May.

A PlayStation Showcase in May 2024?

It’s been a while now since we’ve had a PlayStation Showcase or State of Play: the brand’s last show was devoted solely to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, months ago. In order to relaunch its activity and clarify its plans, but also because Sony Interactive Entertainment is undergoing some internal restructuring, the players are impatiently awaiting a new meeting. This has just been more or less confirmed.

It’s in his official message regarding the appointment of Hideaki Nishino and Hermen Hulst at the head of SIE that Sony CEO Hiroki Totoki made an interesting little statement:

Later this month, you’ll learn more about Sony Group’s long-term vision and the critical role SIE plays in that vision.

Necessarily, many are expecting a new PlayStation Showcase… but caution is nevertheless required and for good reason: Totoki’s message, although publicly revealed, was first sent to the firm’s employees. So, this meeting could very well be internal, for example by being a meeting with investors. This won’t stop us from learning the future of Sony Interactive Entertainment per se, as promised, but let’s just say that the sugarcoat is less enticing than a show with great fanfare. We should be fixed within a few days.

A new vision for Sony

Hideaki Nishino

A few months ago, we learned of the departure of Jim Ryan, the head of SIE: it was only several days ago that the Japanese giant found its successor… or rather two successors: Hideaki Nishino and Hermen Hulst. The first has been working at Sony for a long time, previously working as a Platform Business Group. : he will take care of the technological part, products, services and the PlayStation experience. In addition, it will be up to him to maintain relationships with third-party partners, publishers and developers alike.

Hermen Hulst

As for Hermen Hulst, the Dutchman first proved himself by being at the head of the Guerrilla Games studio (Killzone, Horizon), before gradually climbing the ranks. First at the head of PlayStation Studios then, therefore, at that of Sony Interactive Entertainment entirely alongside Nishino. Hulst will head the Studio Business Group department (which includes development, publishing and commercial operations of first party games)but will also take care of the good content of the cinematic adaptations of PlayStation IPs.

Two CEOs and not just one, for a vision that is both Japanese and European, versus only American in the time of Jim Ryan: yes, we can indeed expect some changes. Which should therefore be revealed very soon, therefore.
