KEY POINTS

  • The next PlayStation Showcase is scheduled for Sept. 9
  • The event will run for 40 minutes
  • Fans to see the full trailer for "God of War: Ragnarok" at the event

Japanese gaming giant Sony earlier announced its next PlayStation Showcase will happen next week. If the latest leak about the untitled "God of War" sequel, colloquially referred to as "God of War: Ragnarok," turns out to be accurate, the highly anticipated title will make an appearance at the show.

The most recent leak, which claims "God of War: Ragnarok" will be at the coming PlayStation Showcase, came from Xbox Era co-founder Nick Baker. The insider accurately leaked PlayStation-related information in the past and previously talked about a PS event taking place in September.

In a tweet, Baker shared a screenshot of his conversation with a source, implying that the much-awaited title will appear at the event. 

Fans have long been waiting to see a PlayStation event since the gaming giant was absent at this year's E3. It appears they are in for a treat as Sony is expected to reveal surprising announcements at its upcoming event. 

"I've been told there are some super announcements in this," VGC's Andy Robinson wrote on Twitter.

Based on Sony's announcement, the next PlayStation Showcase will take place on Sept. 9, at around 4 p.m. ET. The event will run for 40 minutes. 

Fans can reportedly expect "updates from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry's most imaginative developers, for games releasing this holiday and beyond."

Sony also confirmed the PSVR 2 will not be shown at the PlayStation Showcase. Instead, the event will focus on "plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small." 

The Japanese gaming giant has not revealed the list of games players can look forward to at the event. However, fans hope to see the full trailer of the untitled "God of War" sequel.

It can be recalled that when Sony announced the game with a brief teaser in 2020, the company did not disclose its official title. In the absence of an announcement of its official name, fans continue to call it "God of War: Ragnarok."

The game was originally scheduled to release this year, but Santa Monica Studios eventually decided to move its launch to 2022.
