E3 2021 PS4, PS5 Events Guide & Schedules

Sony won’t be at E3 though

A ton of different events are about to kick off around, during, and after the E3 2021 period. E3 2021 itself starts on June 12th and is an online, digital-only event this year.

I’ve had a look through all the events and schedules and decided to put a list of events together where there’s bound to be game news relating to PS4 and/or PS5 games.

So, there’s no Xbox showcase here, because who cares about them. Unless the game is coming to PlayStation.

Of course, Sony was rumored to be holding its own PlayStation Experience event on June 28th. That’s probably bullshit, but you never know.

How do you watch E3 2021? Good question. Some publishers will probably have their own streams. The main E3 events you can watch on a special E3 portal on the various E3 streaming channels on YouTube, Twitch, etc. See this article on the E3 website for more info.

E3 2021 Events that are relevant to PlayStation

Although Sony probably won’t be making an appearance at E3 this year. There are several events that will likely feature games that will be coming to PlayStation consoles.

Battlefield Reveal – Wednesday 9th of June

A new Battlefield game is certain to come to PS4 and PS5.

Summer Games Fest – Thursday 10th of June

Summer Game Fest 2021

Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest returns with what will probably be a fantastic showcase. PlayStation is listed as a partner so I would expect to see some PS4 and PS5 titles here.

Koch Media Primetime Conference – Friday 11th of June

Koch Media is holding a Primetime gaming stream as part of Summer Game Fest this year. I am not exactly sure what games will be shown at the event but there’s bound to be something that will be on PlayStation.
