Although we are yet to get some official confirmation, alleged leak has revealed possible price and even a release date for their next-gen hardware. Among launch lineup of PS5 are new game from God of War developer and Spider-Man 2.

There is always a chance that these leaks roaming around in social media could be fake since they have no credible source or evidence and many of these reveals closely reflects on what people are expecting from upcoming PS5 event.

Even though Sony stated not to appear at E3 2020, it claims that they would return at E3 to discuss details of PS5 and upcoming release titles that includes Demon's Souls Remastered, Godfall, Gran Turismo 7, Legendz and MLB: The Show 21.

Right after Godfall was revealed on State of Play nearing end of last year, Bluepoint Games has already teased remastered version of Demon's Souls and earlier, Santa Monica was also teasing their next entry that is apparently called Legendz.

Receiving universal acclaim for God of War reboot in 2018, fan-expectation from Santa Monica Studio is pretty high now. However, instead of working on a follow-up sequel, developers are focusing their effort on an exclusive for next-gen system.

Despite anyone knowing anything at all about it, Sony console owners are already excited for their new reveal. Probably still in its early development, Legendz would likely to be showcased during this event set for February 5, 2020.

Despite many developers are constantly leaning towards working on their next game for newest consoles, it simply won't make PlayStation 4 outdated soon as a bunch of AAA-titles for the platform are going to see release in 2020.

RELATED: PlayStation 5 to Release in Holiday 2020

With PS4 selling over 100 million units till date and having nearly same number of active players for each month, Sony has filed trademarks for PS6, PS7, PS8, PS9 and PS10, believing to dominate at least five more console generations.

Sony would likely to drop more information on PlayStation 5 features and launch titles as we march ahead in 2020. Currently, they expect PS5 to have a six to seven years lifecycle and is considering adding a PS5-Pro upgrade at some point.

Sucker Punch Productions previously worked on Infamous series for past decade and never really worked on a large-scale game like their current project, which really explains why it took this long for them to get things in right order.
