Due to the cancellation of E3 and other major live events this year in the face of the Coronavirus, several other major companies like EA, Ubisoft and so on have held or announced upcoming events to bring fans news on their latest projects.
It all kicked off with Sony’s reveal of the PlayStation 5, which offered a glimpse at a slew of new games currently in development. More can be found on each game and how much hype they left in their wake here.
