We’re still waiting – hoping? – for word of Sony’s seemingly non-existent annual livestream, but looks like the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase will come first. Scheduled for 9th September, 2022 at 1PM PDT, the broadcast promises “all-new announcements” as well as “new reveals from titles including Disney Dreamlight Valley, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and a sneak peek at the upcoming Marvel ensemble game from Skydance New Media”. That latter game’s from Uncharted’s Amy Hennig.
There’s no mention of Sony games Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Marvel’s Wolverine, although we wouldn’t rule them out entirely from this. We suspect it’s possible the heavily rumoured Black Panther title from EA could be announced during the event, although we’d expect it to be light on information given the project is seemingly still quite early in development. Nevertheless, this looks like it’ll be a worthwhile watch.
The show will be part of the D23 Expo, and while it’ll be available to watch in its entirety online, those in attendance at the sold-out convention will be able to enjoy it live on the Premiere Stage, “with a presentation following the livestream featuring developer interviews, special guests, and exclusive giveaways”. It sounds like one to keep an eye on, then – will you be tuning in?
