For the first time in its 24-year history, Sony Interactive Entertainment will abandon the traditional conference at E3. The company noted that they value the gaming community, which expects experimentation and innovation from it. For this reason, the company will not take part in the annual event.
The company stressed that the year 2019 will bring many surprises, and Sony will not wait for the opportunity to talk about their plans. As noted by The Verge, earlier the company also refused to hold the annual PlayStation Experience, where it usually presents new games and talks about upcoming events.
As one of Sony’s top managers noted, the reason is that the company simply doesn’t have enough content to satisfy an audience that we don’t want to disappoint. “It was a tough decision, ” said Sean Leiden, head of the board of directors at SIE Worldwide Studios.
