It sounds like Sony has scrapped plans to host its annual behind-closed-doors trade event Destination PlayStation, with speculation suggesting that its eyes are firmly focused on the PlayStation 5’s reveal event instead. According to journalist Mike Futter, the manufacturer will allow a “major distributor” to take control of this year’s get-together, where the organisation typically shares its plans for the year with retail partners.

While it’s far from confirmation, it’s yet more evidence that the Japanese giant may be looking to showcase its next-gen system in February. After all, the Destination PlayStation showcase is typically held in February, and if the platform holder is pulling out then it may be because it’s double-booked. The organisation confirmed that it won’t be attending E3 2020 this week, so now we must wait patiently to learn more about its plans.
