Horizon Forbidden West PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Update: As previously promised, in-the-know industry observer Tom Henderson has published a YouTube video on PlayStation's next presentation. Drawing on a mixture of inside sources and educated guesses, he hypothesises that the next Sony livestream will take place in early February, potentially as soon as 3rd February, as the company pairs a big Horizon Forbidden West blowout with a handful of other games, like the upcoming Sifu.

Henderson speculates that a Hogwarts Legacy update could be due, and that there could be a second PlayStation presentation in March, where Sony may show off hardware like PSVR2 as well as other upcoming games, like God of War Ragnarok. It all seems reasonable to us, and means there may be a lot to look forward to over the next couple of months.

In the meantime, of course, Sony has yet to explicitly announce anything, and it's honestly unlikely to confirm any livestream dates until much closer to their air date.

Original Story: Rumourmonger Tom Henderson, a freelancer at a number of major websites, reckons that a big PlayStation presentation is right around the corner. According to the scribe – who’s accurately leaked a handful of stories in the past – “the next Sony event looks like it could be in February based on this month’s media events and past PlayStation dates”.

It’s not entirely clear whether Henderson has inside sources on this, or whether he’s making an educated guess. We contacted him and he told us it’s a mixture of both, and he’ll share a full video with more information soon. In the meantime, he added: “It'll probably be State of Play, but it has the potential to be a pretty big one in my opinion.” Make of that what you will.

This doesn’t seem like a particularly outlandish claim to us. Sony will want at least one more Horizon Forbidden West blowout before 18th February, and with Gran Turismo 7’s release right behind it the timing makes sense for some kind of promotional livestream. We’re always hungry for new PlayStation news, so this is a rumour we hope comes true.
