PlayStation Showcase Coming In May – Report


A new PlayStation Showcase–Sony’s version of a “Direct” presentation–could be coming in May.

That’s according to Jeff Grubb of Giant Bomb, who mentioned on a recent Giant Bombcast episode that he “heard that there will be a PlayStation something, either a State of Play or a showcase, next month, in May.” Grubb speculated Silent Hill 2, which is a PS5 console exclusive, could show up at this showcase, though that remains to be seen.

The Silent Hill 2 remake recently received an official ESRB rating–an M, if there were any doubt–suggesting it may be nearing a release window.

“From a third-person perspective, players explore the town of Silent Hill, interact with characters, and battle humans and creatures (e.g., Pyramid Head, mannequins, monsters),” the ESRB describes Silent Hill 2 in its rating decision, with the details sounding true to the original game. “Players use pistols, shotguns, rifles, and knives to kill enemies.”

The rating warns of violence, blood, and gore–all things that should be expected from a Silent Hill game–as well as sexually suggestive material and implications of sexual violence.

Sony’s most recent State of Play in January revealed new footage of the remake, including our first look at Bloober’s take on Silent Hill combat. Bloober team has said that it wants its remake to be faithful to the original game, saying that Silent Hill 2 is part of a shift towards “mass-market horror” for the studio.

Silent Hill 2 is currently due to release sometime in 2024 on PC and PS5.
