10 Bizarre Games Industry News That Stunned Gamers in 2018
Sony Dips out of E3
Sony announced earlier this year that for the first time since 1995, when the first E3 occurred, the company will not be making an appearance and this news shook the entire games industry.
Sony has not only been a longtime staple of the trade show but one of the best presences at E3 this generation. They almost always bring the heat, the laughs, the surprises and most importantly, the games.
At E3 2019, they’ll be completely absent. They’re not skipping just the conference —they’re skipping E3 all together so don’t expect to see The Last of Us: Part II or Death Stranding anywhere.
This news might be more shocking than anything else on this list simply because it’s quite a perplexing story. Sony didn’t exactly say why they were dipping out on E3, just that they were.
Because of this, speculation has run rampant among the industry. Is it because Sony is announcing the PS5 next year? Is it because Sony has run out of juice? Only time will tell.
For now, if you’re curious about what it could mean, check out some of the reasons we think Sony might be passing E3 up this year.
