The forthcoming PlayStation Showcase won’t feature either Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima 2 or BioWare’s Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, according to GamesBeat reporter and industry insider Jeff Grubb.
After months of rumour and conjecture, PlayStation has finally announced that the first PlayStation Showcase in two years will take place on May 24. Naturally, this has sparked new rumours about what games will show there, which ones are too far off, and which studios may finally reveal what they’ve been quietly working on behind the scenes.
Although many probably thought Ghost of Tsushima 2 was a foregone conclusion given how well-liked the previous game was and how silent Sucker Punch has been since the release of the Iki Island expansion. It appears that there should be no anticipation for anything from it. In the most recent episode of Game Mess Decides, GamesBeat reporter and industry insider Jeff Grubb discussed some of the games to look out to during the showcase. Sadly, Ghost of Tsushima 2 was not one of those games.
“Real quick, moving back to PlayStation Showcase, I might have just snipped out two things that won’t be there, if that helps anybody,” Grubb stated during the podcast. Ghost of Tsushima 2 doesn’t seem like it will attend. Most likely, it won’t be.
Given how inactive Sucker Punch has been lately, this might come as quite a shock, but it’s important to keep in mind that Ghost of Tsushima only debuted three years ago, right in the thick of a pandemic. Even though Covid makes it seem like it has been longer, the Iki Island expansion was only two years ago, so it hasn’t really been that long.
However, there are likely other games that will be completely excluded from the PlayStation Showcase. Grubb went on to explain that he won’t present Dragon Age: Dreadwolf there either, adding that when he last discussed it, he said it would happen “at the earliest” this year. He joked that we can now state with certainty that it won’t happen this year.
Since the future Mass Effect game appears to be far earlier in development than Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, it seems likely that BioWare won’t have a presence at the PlayStation Showcase if Dragon Age: Dreadwolf isn’t going to be present. Grubb points out that showing off the new Dragon Age in the summer of 2024 is more likely. At least, players were able to catch a very brief taste of early gameplay for it in these early-year leaks.
