Sony is planning a PlayStation 5 event in early June and a State of Play in August according to a report by Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat. Between the new Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, Microsoft has spent more time explaining the development of the next generation console compared to Sony.

But that may come to end soon. According to the report, Sony was looking at June 4 as a date for a PS5 focused event, but that isn't happening any longer. Although, the date isn't being delayed significantly, and an early June launch is still on the table.

The plan was to show off a multitude of games including exclusive and third-party outlets, but with the shifting timeframe, that may change. Instead, the meeting could strictly be about PS5 details.

That would leave the State of Play set for August as a reveal for next-gen games, and launch titles for the PS5. As the company with the least amount of information out about their next product, these next couple of months will be important to excite and entice the fanbase for a holiday release.
