Shawn Layden PS4 PlayStation 4 Sony 1

Sony said at the end of last year that it’s looking to crank up communication with PlayStation fans in 2019, but in a rare interview, Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden failed to express exactly what the organisation has in store. To make matters more infuriating, this is the first time a major executive from the organisation has spoken to the media in a long time, and there’s no indication of when (or, indeed, whether) we’ll hear from the suits again.

Layden spent most of his time explaining why the firm has opted to pull out of trade show E3 2019 this year, but when asked what it will be doing to replace the convention, he simply dodged the question: “In a perfect Shawn Layden future, I'm living in Tahiti.” Well, that’s good to know, but we’re already deep into February and have no idea what the platform holder’s got planned for the remainder of the year.

Last year, the executive told the PlayStation Blog that the manufacturer was really looking to ramp up the way it communicates with fans: “We’re going to crank that communication up, we're going to find more ways to get our message out and get a view into what our activities are and what our hopes and dreams are, if you will, for PlayStation and for Worldwide Studios,” he said.

Well, we’re waiting.gif.
