Sony will hold a PlayStation 5 games showcase June 3, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

The event, to be held virtually, will be the first to reveal the slate of titles set for release on Sony's next-generation console. Although it's set for June 3, Bloomberg's sources cautioned that plans may change before the date in question, likely because of coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns.

The broadcast will not reveal all the details about the new console, but will shed light on its lineup.

Information about the PS5 has remained in short supply ahead of its planned holiday 2020 release. Sony remains committed to that release window in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic's adverse effect on its promotional plans. Sony revealed the PS5's controller, the DualSense, April 7.

Microsoft held a games showcase for its Xbox Series X on May 7, becoming the first of the two console giants to reveal games coming to its offering. The Series X is also scheduled for a holiday release.
