Amazing how Sunset Overdrive shows up on a Reddit leak right after Sony renews the trademark.

Convenient, isn't it? More Sunset Overdrive also seems super redundant now that Insomniac's got Spider-Man.

Isn’t Back4Blood out in June already?

It was delayed a while back to Fall.

I would argue it makes sense to re-release that game with it's multiplayer since Sony's first party there are not many with that. ANd since it's already been released on PC, it could be cross play. But let's see if this is bullshit, I think we are going to get another state of play First/Second week of June after Ratchet's release.

GTA5 re-re-remaster is being hyped for a fall release... fucking insane. That game has ruined Rockstar creatively. Congrats on the monies though.

Thats not the only Rockstar game that we might hear about.

And I think for at least this year and next year, remasters from Rockstar will be a thing.

5/6 weeks till E3 and surely we assume that there will be a Sony event either a week before or after so why have two events within a month? (assuming that it ain't happening this week)

While it's true that some day they'll have to show GTA PS5 and that stuff they said of GTA Online for Plus, that the'll need to show Stray or Back 4 Blood some day and that if they updated their Sunset Overdrive will be for something, but not just now with these two things when they are working on Ratchet and Spider-Man 2. I think this random 4chan rumor is fake.

Regarding Dreams I think it will end being ported to PC, so it would make sense that before that they may release a PS5 version to have in PlayStation some of th extra stuff this version can provide, plus some extra PS5 exclusive features support (DualSense features, Audio 3D, etc).

Insomniac owned the Sunset Overdrive IP so now Sony owns it. This means that if they release a sequel or a remake it would be published by Sony, not by MS. On top of that doesn't makes sense to put Sonic Colors Ultimate here in the Sonic Colors remaster rumor ends being true. On top of that, doesn't make sense to see here a random anime game. Yes, Sony signed a deal with Kadokawa to help them with their IPs in the west, and Symphogear is an anime Kadokawa IP, but if they made a game like that and Sony was going to push it in the west it would be a game published by Kadokawa or Sony, not by Tecmo.

5/6 weeks till E3 and surely we assume that there will be a Sony event either a week before or after so why have two events within a month? (assuming that it ain't happening this week)
I think Sony will have their big summer event around the E3 days where they will drop their main bombs, like GoWR or Horizon 2. I think it makes sense to make a separate event around a month before and another around a month after to show many minor games they have to market but aren't big enough to fit into their main summer event. But I think this list is fake.

Hmm I'm skeptical (especially the shit that comes from that subreddit) but this list stands out

  • Dreams+ - Isn't Dreams already on PS5? If not I can see a version that you can use with the Dual Sense, that'd be cool
  • Project Cars 3 - I was convinced this was already out
  • Back 4 Blood - This was delayed, so pre E3 would be strange
  • Symphogear Unite
  • Stray - No Idea on these 2
  • Sonic Colors Ultimate - this has been a rumor for a while, but I'd expect it on a Nintendo Direct more tbh
  • The Mitchells vs The Machines: Overcharged - Hell of a title
  • Grand Theft Auto 5 - I can see this one, it has been in the works for a while and was announced ages ago
  • Sunset Overdrive Refreshed Edition - Was this before the Trademark listing was revealed? I can see this as a nice rerelease on PS5, was a pretty nice game as well
  • Sunset Apocalypse - I don't think Insomniac would be big enough to support 3 ongoing games, and that's assuming Sunset Overdrive is being ported by someone else.

Yeah, I meant the part about a sequel. Port of the first, sure.

Horizon: forbidden west has it's own State of Play in June. God of war we wont see until Sony's "E3" state of play. Which will consist of more concrete updates to Stray, Solar Ash, third party partnered games like FF16. Games like Kena will either be a part of this summer's State of play, or get it's own like Ratchet did closer to launch. So in July.

Insomniac is busy getting Ratchet to gold, and the rest of the team not working on "other" projects on top of early work for SPiderman 2.

Jim aint wasting time and money on that shit IP

I can see them re-releasing it with PS5 features, and making it a PS+ game to get people in on the multiplayer. Which also will be added to Steam PC version. They could be re-releasing this to gauge audience for a sequel. But right now there are other projects they are working on that require more attention.

That list looks legit because there is nothing there I'm excited about. :messenger_tears_of_joy: Well maybe the GTA5 Remaster or w/e I've only had it on PS3, PS4 and PC.

Yeah, June 12 is the start of E3 so that makes before imo a bit tough.

You think there will be 2 events in June from Sony?

It depends if there is enough to show from Gureilla Games. They may like with Ratchet give Horizon it's own state of play which seems more likely than to have a 5-10 minute demo with a trailer be part of their E3 state of play which needs to show gameplay for games shown a year ago.

We still have not seen straight couple minutes of gameplay from Kena, Stray, Solar ash, FF 16. We have also not gotten a proper trailer from Santa MOnica. SO even if we leave santa monica out of the discussion, we still need updates to games from last year on top of third party titles.

So unless you want 2 hours of trailers/ gameplay video's makes sense to have something separate for a big game like Horizon for it to have it's own spotlight.

Even Jeff Grubb has said as much with his Summer Game mess. And I'm hearing from a couple people that Sony has a couple big reveals for their show that they dont want to over shadow Horizon. If you think Horizon gameplay is their biggest thing for E3, oh boy you guys are in for a ride :)

I think Horizon is a late q3/early q4 game so think that State of Play is July earliest but who knows.

Dreams isn't dead yet? Feels like Sony completely gave up on this game after the disappointing sales numbers.

I haven't played Sunset Overdrive, but it looked nice on the Xbox and I wouldn't mind giving it a chance.

Ah yes, Xbox Game Studios, going to publish a game they don't own on PS4 and 5.

How can an entire SoP leak this far out?
I doubt this program is even set in stone at this point, let alone that any single person would be privy enough to leak anything this accurate.

I'm calling BS.
